The major role of the Speech and Hearing Clinic is to introduce students to hands-on therapeutic techniques in speech-language and audiological disorders by providing a supervised learning experience in which to offer services to the community. Each student is expected to complete specified direct clock hours of observation, therapy, and evaluation. Certified members of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association closely supervise all students.
The Speech and Hearing Clinic is a function of the Masters of Science in Communication Disorders (MSCD) program at Stockton University. The clinic has two major purposes:
- To serve as a training ground for students who are preparing to become speech-language pathologists
- To provide therapeutic and diagnostic services for children and adults with disorders of communication
The services of Stockton University Speech and Hearing Clinic are of two kinds: evaluation of speech, language, and hearing; and rehabilitation for those who need such help.
Evaluations are conducted on an individual basis. As a result of the evaluation, a client may be enrolled in therapy, referred for additional testing, or referred to other resources.
Therapy sessions are performed by graduate students who work under the careful supervision of a speech-language pathologist or audiologist certified by the American Speech Language Hearing Association. Clients are seen once or twice a week for individual 50 minute sessions.
Physicians, teachers, school administrators, nurses, parents, counselors, or the clients themselves may make referrals to the clinic.
Hours of operation, appointment scheduling, and other information may be obtained by calling 609-652-4920.
As the Clinic is always seeking ways to maximize the quality of services clients receive, satisfaction surveys are sent to each client at the end of each semester or upon dismissal from services. Responses may be anonymous, but every effort is made to personally address any concerns or ideas our clients/parents present.
In recent years, 100% satisfaction has been reported regarding improvement in treated difficulties. 93% of respondents rate the services received as "excellent." Student clinicians and supervisors have been described as "great, knowlegeable, creative, extremely professional, and courteous." Services/experiences have been described as "great, reasonably priced, very positive."
