ABOUT THE SPEECH AND HEARING CENTER
The ASU Speech and Hearing Center serves a dual purpose within the ASU community and Northeast Arkansas.
First, the ASU Speech and Hearing Center is a clinical laboratory where both undergraduate and graduate speech-language pathology students gain practicum experience through the supervised delivery of speech, language, and hearing services to individuals with communication disorders. The ASU Speech and Hearing Center also, on occasion, contracts with schools and agencies for the provision of services away from the campus.
Second, the center provides diagnostic evaluation and intervention (treatment/therapy) services to individuals with communication disorders... from ASU students, staff, faculty, and their dependents, to those within the Northeast Arkansas region, free of charge. 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 each semester.
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.
