UNCG Speech and Hearing Center offers a lot – even summer camps

Posted on Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 by CommunityEngagement.

The UNCG Speech and Hearing Center, in operation since 1967, offers professional services for evaluation and treatment of speech, language, and hearing disorders to individuals across the lifespan. Services are open to UNCG students, faculty and staff, as well as to the community at large.

Instruction is also offered to persons who are proficient in spoken English, but wish to modify foreign accents or regional dialects. The Center serves as a training facility for graduate level students in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in UNCG’s School of Health and Human Sciences. The student clinicians work with clients under the direct supervision of UNCG faculty members who hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and North Carolina licensure in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology.

UNCG faculty, staff and students, as well as full-time Consortium students, may be eligible for speech and language services during the fall and spring semesters via enrollment in CSD 219. Instructor permission is required. Free screening and a 50% discount on services may be available as well.
