Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic

Established in 1998, the Duquesne University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic serves people of all ages who have problems communicating.

The Clinic is an integral part of the clinical education program for graduate students in the University's Department of Speech-Language Pathology.

State licensed and nationally certified faculty practitioners directly supervise and are responsible for all services provided.

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. Services may also be provided via Telepractice.

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 are available for those who qualify.
