The SIUE Speech, Language, and Hearing Center provides diagnostic and speech-language therapy to individuals of all ages as part of the student education program. The center provides valuable clinical experience to the graduate students who will become tomorrow's speech-language pathologists. All sessions are conducted by graduate students and supervised by clinical faculty.
Services for Young Children
The center provides services to children beginning in infancy. For children who have difficulty communicating, combining words, understanding or making themselves understood, the center offers therapy programs that are play-based and incorporates the family and other caregivers into the program.
Services for School-Age Children
The center provides one-on-one therapy for the school-age child who may have difficulty with articulation, language, stuttering, voice production, or central auditory processing. For many children, language difficulties affect academic performance. We maintain open lines of communication with classroom teachers and school-based professionals to ensure that therapy targets academic areas that are affected by speech and language disorders.
Services for Adults
The center provides functional therapy to those individuals that have a communication disorder that is affecting their quality of daily living, employment, school, and relationships with family and friends. Support groups for Aphasia and Cognitive clients are available.
