The Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic seeks to improve the quality of life of people who have disorders of communication and swallowing.
The mission of the IUP Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic
is to provide the highest quality preventative and (re)habilitative services
across our scope of practice to the IUP and surrounding communities. We do this by scaffolding and supporting our
students to translate evidenced-based, theoretical knowledge into clinical
practice and ensure that patient care is culturally and
linguistically sensitive across the lifespan. Similarly, we strive to collaborate with other service providers both
inter- and intraprofessionally. Lastly,
we endeavor to align the mission and goals of our clinic with the IUP
Speech-Language Pathology Program mission and vision, the university’s
strategic plan, and the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association’s
code of ethics.
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.
