Evaluation and Treatment
The Clinic provides diagnostic and treatment services on an outpatient basis in Fisher Hall on the Duquesne campus. Following an evaluation, individual and/or group therapy sessions are scheduled to meet the individual needs of each client.
While not all services may be covered, the Clinic is a participating provider with many insurance companies, as well as the State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. Alternatively, fee reductions may be available for those who qualify.
The Clinic is thus comprised of the following six specialty clinics that reflect the expertise of our faculty.
|Adult Neurogenic Clinic: Offers comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services to adults who present with mild to severe disabilities.|
|Child Language Clinic: Evaluation and treatment services are provided for children from birth to age 18 years with language problems related to a variety of diagnoses.|

|Speech Production Clinic: Services for children having difficulty producing sounds or being understood by others are provided through comprehensive assessment and therapy.|
