The Duquesne University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic
Duquesne University's Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic serves people of all ages from the greater Pittsburgh area who have a variety of communication problems. The Clinic is comprised of six specialty clinics which reflect the expertise of our faculty -- Adult Neurogenics, Child Language, Hearing, Pediatric Speech Production, Stuttering, and Voice.
In the first year of the professional phase of the program (graduate program), students work with faculty members in many of the specialty clinics, Student clinicians work closely with faculty to gain valuable clinical experience and knowledge and to develop fundamental clinical skills. Students participate in the assessment, treatment and counseling of persons with communicative impairments. Student clinicians also work with parents and spouses of clients to teach them how to assist in the therapeutic process and maximize client outcomes.
Clinical practicum helps to focus academic learning to help real people with real problems. For more information about the University Clinic click here.
