The Department of Communication Disorders encourages experiential learning through classrooms, laboratories, and the Center for Speech and Hearing where students can receive hands-on experience working directly with patients from the community.

Center for Speech and Hearing

The Center for Speech and Hearing provides comprehensive diagnostic and intervention services for communication disorders for all ages. Our services are available to the general public.


The department has two graduate laboratory facilities in the Center for Speech and Hearing. The augmentative/alternative communication (AAC) lab consists of AAC equipment and devices. The acoustics/swallowing lab consists of videostroboscopy, voice recording and swallowing analysis equipment. In addition to the two graduate labs, there is a classroom-based laboratory space for teaching anatomy and physiology to undergraduate students in Grauel Building 111.
