The Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic seeks to improve the quality of life of people who have disorders of communication and swallowing.
Our goal is to prevent impairments in communication and swallowing when possible, and to reduce the disability and handicap that may result from those impairments that do occur, whether mild or severe. We do this best by preparing our students to deliver quality clinical services, to clientele of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and of ages that extend across the human lifespan. We also accomplish this goal through our service to the community, from the university to the world at large.
Our clinical training is not only high touch, but it is also high tech. All of our diagnostic and treatment sessions are digitally recorded so that they may be reviewed by student clinicians and their faculty supervisors. Sessions may also be used for clinical education in relevant courses, allowing students to see classroom content being applied to actual cases.
All speech-language pathology and audiology services are provided by our graduate students and senior-level undergraduates under the direct supervision of our faculty, who are all state licensed and nationally certified speech-language pathologists and audiologists. All faculty members hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology awarded by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
