Hearing Impaired Language and Literacy Program

Posted on January 6th, 2017 by Greg Snyder

Our mission, along with the University of Mississippi, is to create, evaluate, share and apply knowledge in a free, open, and inclusive environment of intellectual inquiry. We seek to serve the people of Mississippi and the world through a breadth of academic, research and professional programs by:
  • Providing an intensive program that focuses on the development of language and literacy in children with moderate to severe language disorders, hearing impairments, and intellectual or developmental disabilities; supporting these children as they transition to public schools or other academic settings.
  • Providing exemplary clinical training for undergraduate and graduate students seeking careers as speech-language pathologists (SLPs), speech associates, and audiologists.
  • Interfacing with the community, including local schools, teachers, staff, and administration, to promote successful language interventions in academic and social contexts.
  • Engaging in research that positively impacts the fields of early childhood education and communicative disorders, and disseminating evidenced-based practice findings to the scientific community, clinical practitioners, community agencies, schools, and families.
