Expert, professional, comprehensive services are available through the UGA Speech and Hearing Clinic for prevention, assessment, and treatment of speech, language, swallowing, and hearing disorders. Serving individuals from infancy to geriatrics, the clinic provides state-of-the-art services to provide:
- A clinical training site for graduate students earning a master’s degree in speech-language pathology, and
- A service to the community
Services are provided by graduate student clinicians under the supervision of licensed and certified audiologists and speech-language pathologists. The clinic strives to provide services which are on the forefront of current practice within the field of communication sciences and disorders, which are based on research evidence, and which involve the client or client’s caregiver in all aspects of decision-making in respect to the services received.
The Speech and Hearing Clinic provides a valuable service to the community, seeing approximately 1000 different clients each year. Over 2000 free speech and hearing screenings are provided annually in preschools, schools, and our on-campus clinic. These screenings provide early identification of hearing, speech, language and swallowing problems so that appropriate intervention can be recommended or provided.
