ASU Department of Speech and Hearing Science

  

The Department of Speech & Hearing Sciences (SHS) is committed to the science and practice of communication. Located in the Phoenix area, we are part of the College of Health Solutions. Our research and courses address the fundamental aspects of communication—hearing, speech, language, education and neuroscience. In addition, we address the causes, assessment, and treatment associated with disorders, such as childhood speech sound disorders, aphasia, language impairment, stuttering, voice disorders, and hearing loss. In addition, we address the technology to improve assessment and intervention for people with these disorders. The Department houses the ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic, a state of the art clinical training facility that is integral to our Department and serves those affected by communication disorders within our community.
