About the Center for Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders

The Lebanon Valley College Center for Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders is a free clinic available to children and adults with communication and swallowing disorders. Evaluations and interventions are provided by graduate student clinicians who are supervised by highly trained clinical educators with years of clinical experience. The speech-language pathology faculty and clinical educators work closely with graduate student clinicians to create treatment plans that use evidence-based practices.


What Can Students Expect?

The LVC Center for Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders provides graduate speech-language pathology (SLP) students opportunities to evaluate and treat individuals under the direct supervision of ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists and an audiologist. With assistance from the clinical educators, SLP students will select and administer appropriate diagnostic tools, determine realistic and appropriate plans of treatment, and provide intervention services to clients in our center. Clinical educators will provide supervision to the SLP students as required by CFCC guidelines.


Department’s Mission

The mission of the Communication Sciences and Disorders/Speech-Language Pathology (CSD/SLP) program at Lebanon Valley College is to support the critical thinking and reflective capacity of our students through closely mentored relationships which enable all students to grow to their potential. This departmental mission aligns with the student-centered mission of Lebanon Valley College that embraces differences and seeks to empower students with a professional education based upon the liberal arts. We believe in the mission of the College to provide immersive learning experiences that will aid in the development of analytical decision-making skills using reflective practice and evidence-based approaches. We educate students to be clinically and culturally competent clinicians that serve the diverse needs of people with communication and swallowing disorders. The rigorous curriculum offers courses to help students think critically and comply with ethical standards expected by those holding the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Certificate of Clinical Competence. We encourage the students to pursue citizenship and lifelong learning.

The Center for Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders is a free clinic and does not require insurance.
