Biographical details

Dr Elise Baker is a senior lecturer with the Discipline of Speech Pathology, at the Faculty of Health Sciences. She is involved in the education and training of undergraduate and graduate speech-language pathology students, the supervision of graduate research students, and continuing education activities for qualified speech-language pathologists in her main area of interest: speech sound acquisition and disorders in children.


Dr. Baker is regularly invited by the Speech Pathology Association of Australia to present continuing education workshops. She serves as a member of the NSW Speech Pathology Evidence-based Practice Network Steering Committee and has been an invited speaker at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association convention.

Research interests

Dr Baker's research focuses on speech sound disorders in children including assessment, differential diagnosis, intervention, and innovative service delivery solutions. Dr. Baker is particularly interested in the management of speech sound disorders for children of preschool age, children who are late to talk, and children who speak more than one language. Dr. Baker is also interested in speech pathologists conduct of evidence-based practice, translational research, the interaction between the phonological and lexical systems in word learning.

Dr Baker is a co-director of the Kids Talk Lab andmember of the Communication Sciences and Disorders team .

Teaching and supervision

Dr. Baker is the Speech Pathology Honours Coordinator.

She is the unit-of-study coordinator for CSCD 2068 Speech Sound Disorders. Dr. Baker also teaches into other units-of-study including BHSC3021 Honours A: Research Design, and BHSC4012 Honours B: Applied Research Skills.

Dr. Baker supervises undergraduate honours research students, graduate masters research students, and doctoral students, in the areas of Speech Sound Disorders in children, and the relationship between phonological and lexical learning.
