The La Salle University Speech-Language-Hearing Community Clinics (LUSLHCC), which opened in 2008, provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to those with communication or swallowing disorders who live in the community surrounding La Salle. The clinics are also an invaluable training ground for speech-language pathology graduate students, who are supervised by licensed speech-language pathologists as they work with clients.
Two clinics are available for adults and children:
The purposes of the LUSLHCC clinics are two-fold: to provide SLP graduate students with clinical experience during their program and to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to those in the surrounding community with communication and/or swallowing disorders. The students receive one-to-one supervision from licensed and certified speech-language-pathologists as they provide diagnostic and therapeutic intervention across the entire spectrum of communication disorders.
The La Salle University Speech-Language-Hearing Community Clinics are used primarily as an educational training facility, so the fees are reduced and a sliding scale may be offered based on financial need.
The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and the La Salle University Speech-Language-Hearing Community Clinics adhere to La Salle University’s policies on nondiscrimination. We are committed to nondiscriminatory human relations across all aspects of education, employment and clinical service delivery without regard to the person’s race, color, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, marital status, parental status, genetic history, veteran status, disability, or any other categories protected by federal or state law. The complete University policies can be found in the Graduate Catalog beginning on page 5.
