The clinic, housed within the department, provides assessment and treatment services for a wide variety of children and adults with communication disorders.

Providing innovative, evidence-based assessment and treatment methodologies to those seeking to improve their functional communication skills has been a primary focus of speech and language therapy offered in our clinic. All assessments and therapy are conducted by graduate student clinicians under direct supervision
