Speech and Hearing Center

The Speech and Hearing Clinic, located in Monroe Hall, is operated by the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in connection with its clinical training program. Students provide therapy while being supervised by faculty who hold appropriate clinical certification and licensure.

Services provided by the clinic include evaluation and therapy in the following areas:

  • Speech/articulation disorders
  • Developmental language disorders
  • Aphasia resulting from head injury or stroke
  • Voice disorders
  • Laryngectomy
  • Cleft palate
  • Stuttering
  • Foreign accent reduction
  • Communication problems resulting from hearing loss

Complete audiologic evaluations are available. Therapy is conducted in rooms that are observable via a closed circuit system. Families of clients are encouraged to observe therapy so that they may better help the clients at home.

Clients at the clinic include members of the community, children attending the Mekeel Child Care Center, and students and employees of the university. Both evaluation and therapy are free with the exception of auditory process testing. Anyone interested in clinic services should contact the clinic director at 570-422-3247.
