Speech Clinic

Art therapy session

The CSUSM Speech-Language Clinic provides services to individuals with neurological impairments to improve speech/language/cognitive skills. Graduate students provide individualized services under the guidance and supervision of state-licensed and nationally certified speech-language pathologists to approximately 100 individuals annually. Our goal is to provide functional speech-language therapy with a focus on promoting wellness, therefore improving our clients' overall quality of life. When providing treatment, we keep family, caregiver, and client preferences in mind, and use an evidence-based practice approach.

The CSUSM Speech-Language Clinic offers individual and group therapy to adults with communication impairments in the fall, spring, and summer. The clinic offers a variety of specialty clinics that reflect the expertise of our faculty in both pediatric and adult populations. Please contact the clinic for additional information.

Conducting a hearing test

Each month the clients and student clinicians write and produce a newsletter called "The Wave".
