Who we serve
We look forward to serving you!
Faculty/Staff/Public are able to contact us and schedule an appointment for speech/language or audiology services. We typically set up an evaluation first, the exception being someone who has completed recent testing at another facility and qualifies for speech/language services based on the scores they received on testing at that site. This is only known after we receive permission to share information with the other site. Families of faculty/staff and students are certainly welcome. We want to serve and support our University family.
