Special Features of the Department
The faculty and program are recognized for strengths in:
- Cross-cultural issues in clinical service delivery.
- Assessment and treatment of (central) auditory processing disorder.
We are committed to increasing cultural diversity within our program and take particular pride in our Native Americans in Communication Disorders training project which, for over a decade, has continued to provide students of American Indian heritage with financial, educational, and social support necessary for professional preparation as speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
Our National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) organization sponsors a series of activities to bring faculty and students together in informal gatherings. Every year, NSSLHA sponsors a conference featuring regional experts in the field of speech and hearing sciences.
