One of the best ways to learn is by practicing what you are taught in the classroom. Our department runs two clinics where you, as a student, can get hands-on experience working with real patients in your field of study.
Our speech, language & hearing clinic provides services to those in the community with speech, language, cognitive-communication, feeding or hearing difficulties. Services are offered during the day and after school. The TWU graduate students who provide these services are supervised by faculty members who are ASHA-certified and Texas-licensed speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
This clinic offers alternative physiological treatments for stroke. Health professionals and graduate students-in-training meet with individual patients to complete a comprehensive assessment, outline a plan of care and provide outpatient services. Services include speech/language therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy assessment and intervention and psychosocial counseling.
The TWU clinics within the department of Communication Sciences and Disorders do not refuse services on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, age, veteran’s status, or against qualified disabled persons except as provided by law. The university clinics comply with nondiscrimination regulations under Title VI and Title VII, Civil Rights Acts of 1964; Title IX, Education Amendments Act of 1972; Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990; the Age Discrimination Act of 1967; and other applicable statutes.
