• Speech-Language-Hearing Center

    At the Worcester State University Speech-Language-Hearing Center, we help people of all ages with communication disorders, including difficulties with articulation, fluency, voice, language, and hearing.

    The Center serves:

    • People with a variety of diagnoses, including autism, brain injury, cerebral palsy, intellectual disability, and stroke
    • Children and teens who stutter
    • Individuals suffering from hearing loss
    • Non-native English speakers who wish to reduce their foreign accents

    We’ve been assisting the community for more than 35 years. We operate two clinics: the Speech-Language Clinic and the Hearing Clinic. These clinics are staffed by speech-language pathologists and audiologists certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. We accept referrals, and we assess fees for our services.

    The Center is housed in Worcester State’s Communication Sciences and Disorders Department, and we partner with its Speech-Language Pathology master’s program to provide educational experiences to graduate students. Our students acquire knowledge and skills while delivering high-quality clinical, diagnostic, and intervention services under the attentive supervision of our staff.

    We are fully committed to a policy of non-discrimination. We require case managers and students to abide by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Code of Ethics to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of all our clients.

    The Center is open whenever Worcester State University is open—the schedule is based on the academic calendar:

    • Fall sessions run from late September through mid-December
    • Spring sessions run from early February through early May
    • Summer features a 6-week program that runs from late June through early August
