Serving Individuals with Communication Disorders and Preparing Professionals
The University of Montevallo’s Speech and Hearing Center is a training facility for graduate students studying Speech Language Pathology. All services are provided by graduate students under the direct supervision of an American Speech-Hearing-Association certified and Licensed Speech Language Pathologist.
The department complies with federal, state, and UM policies and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, marital status, or veteran status.
The department also complies with the American-Speech-Language and Hearing Association’s position statement and does not discriminate against students or professionals who speak English with accents and nonstandard dialects in the provision of speech, language, and hearing services.
Children of all ages may receive diagnostic and therapy services through the center operated by the CSD Department at the University of Montevallo. Children can participate in the therapy program at the center according to their individualized needs. However, because the University of Montevallo Speech and Hearing Center is a training facility, the number of clients is restricted depending on the number of graduate clinicians and their training needs. Some children may benefit from “after school” treatment services while participating in their regular academic programs in public or private schools. Families with preschool children may need services such as those offered in our clinic. Children may be seen several times per week for group and/or individual therapy. Extensive diagnostic services are also available for a variety of communication disorders. There is a nominal fee for services, but families for whom payment presents a financial hardship may speak to the Clinic Director for other arrangements.
