The Speech and Hearing Center is a clinical laboratory where speech-language pathology students gain practicum experience through the supervised delivery of speech, language, and hearing services to individuals with communication disorders. The Speech and Hearing Center also contracts with schools and agencies for the provision of services away from the campus.
The center also provides free diagnostic evaluation and treatment/therapy services to individuals with communication disorders. The facility offers 55 minute individualized and group setting therapeutic sessions in private therapy rooms. A clinical workroom houses all therapy materials and resources, as well as standardized tests and protocols. An audiological suite contains equipment to perform audiologic evaluations (hearing tests).
The facility operates on a per-semester basis, and is closed during final exams and between semesters, resuming services shortly after classes begin. To ensure proper supervision and training for each student, as well as appropriate and ethical services to every client, a limited number of clients can be admitted each semester. These admissions are based on the needs of the individual, facility accommodations, and student competency needs. Self-referrals are allowed.
To be considered for enrollment, please call 870-972-3301 and request a referral form. If we have space available to accommodate your needs, you will be contacted to schedule an initial appointment. Please be aware that because our services are free of charge, our schedule is frequently at capacity.
