Speech and Hearing Clinic Mission Statement

  • To provide excellence in training to students in audiology and speech-language pathology.
    To provide state-of-the-art clinical services to individuals of all ages within the community.
    To engage in cutting-edge research with faculty in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science.

The ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic is an on-campus clinic that exists to provide opportunities for students to develop their clinical knowledge and skills by providing advanced and state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic speech, language and hearing services to the general public and the university community. Each patient is seen by one of our clinical faculty as well as a graduate student clinician who is closely supervised by our state-licensed and nationally certified audiologists and speech-language pathologists in order to ensure the highest quality service to our clients. Because the Speech and Hearing Clinic serves the training needs of students, services provided to patients may be observed by other students in training.

The ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic has a national reputation of excellence in the quality of clinical services provided to children and adults with communication disorders and in the quality of clinical education offered to graduate students in speech pathology and audiology. It is our mission to train competent professionals in speech, language pathology and audiology with an appropriate scientific background, clinical skill and an appreciation for the need for evidenced-based practice. More than 2,000 clients receive speech, language and hearing services through our clinics each year, and we continue to grow in the number of clients served, providing a valuable service to the community.
