ACADEMICS

  • 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.

    We serve:

    • 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

    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're 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

    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.
