Sarah Wainscott is an associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, joining the faculty in 2011. Dr. Wainscott is invested in pursuing optimal outcomes for children who are deaf and hard of hearing and their families, with 20 years of field experience including pediatric audiology, early childhood deaf education, auditory verbal therapy, and program development. She trains professionals in speech-language pathology and deaf education on topics of audiology, aural habilitation and early language development and pursues research in the areas of early hearing detection and intervention.

Dr. Wainscott coordinates the Follow-Through-Guide Project, a cooperative effort between Texas Hands & Voices and Texas Department of State Health Services, which has made great strides in addressing loss to follow-up and loss to documentation within the TEHDI system. She loves her hometown of Denton, Texas, where she lives and works with her husband and five children, two of whom are deaf.
