Speaking, hearing, and understanding are essential to human communication. A communication disorder can affect the way a person interacts with others – often interfering with social, vocational, and education success. Our mission at the Miami University Speech and Hearing Clinic is to serve the speech, language, and hearing needs of individuals by enhancing the quality of their communication skills. We are committed to providing cost effective services that meet the unique needs of all individuals and their families, and to promoting excellence in clinical training of future speech-language-hearing professionals.
Diagnostic and treatment services are provided by graduate student clinicians under the supervision of experienced, licensed, and certified speech-language pathologists and audiologists. Supervision is carried out in accordance with the guidelines mandated by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and the State of Ohio Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
