Services for ASU Students

We provide a variety of services for ASU students, including therapy for:

  • Fluency disorders (e.g. stuttering).
  • Articulation.
  • Cognitive-communication difficulties.
  • Language-based learning difficulties.

We also offer specialized services targeting listening and speaking skills in people with hearing impairment.

Individual Therapy

The ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic offers individual therapy during the fall and spring semesters.  We have openings for individuals who are seeking services for pediatric and adult voice, articulation, fluency, aural rehabilitation, and language-based difficulties. For scheduling information and case history forms please contact the ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic.

Children's Services

In addition to our adult and student-based services, we provide individual and small group therapy sessions for children at both the Tempe campus and as part of our Pediatric Communication Clinic at ASU which is housed off-campus in the nearby Community Services Building (CSB). In addition to individual pediatric therapy session, the clinic provides services to children in toddler playgroup, preschool-aged children language, pre-literacy, and social groups, and to eligible children who are enrolled in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College Preschool.

Our clinic on the Tempe campus offers an After School Articulation and Phonology (ASAP) group for K-6th grade. Please contact the ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic to register.

Adult Services

Individual and group adult neurogenic sessions are available for people who have survived stroke, traumatic brain injury, or are living with other acquired neurogenic-based communication deficits. Sessions for this population are determined by time of onset, amount of previous therapy and insurance benefits. In addition, we offer language-based group activities such as book club, social language, and life participation groups that are designed to enhance communication opportunities. These groups are enrichment programs that facilitate generalization of communication skills in group settings and are not covered by insurance.
