About Our Clinic

Young client with letter
Our clinic accepts clients from the community ranging in age from young children through adults with a variety of communication and swallowing disorders. Our brand new, state-of-the-art facility is located on the campus of DePaul University in the heart of Lincoln Park with easy access to public transportation. In addition to offering services to clients, our clinic provides students in our Speech Language Pathology program with a breadth of clinical experiences and gives them the opportunity to implement various service delivery models and innovative programs based on evidence-based best practices.

Our program provides services for all aspects of communication and swallowing:

  • articulation / speech sound production
  • augmentative/alternative communication
  • cognition
  • fluency
  • hearing
  • language (receptive & expressive)
  • social communication
  • swallowing
  • voice & resonance

Services offered at our clinic include:

  • prevention & screenings
  • comprehensive evaluations
  • therapy services (biweekly & weekly)

Therapy at the clinic will be offered across a continuum of care models:

  • individual sessions
  • small specialized groups (e.g., child language, aphasia, phonology, social communication)
  • summer camps (e.g., language camp, apraxia camp, literacy camp)
  • specialty groups (e.g., Aphasia Recovery Group)

Services are provided by graduate student clinicians who are supervised by faculty members, all of whom have Master's or doctoral degrees in speech-language pathology, hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and maintain a State of Illinois license in speech-language pathology.
