The MSLP program trains you in intervention and therapeutic techniques and in the tools used to assess communication disorders. Academic learning is integrated with practicum experiences at a clinical site to help you acquire the skills needed to work with populations affected by developmental delay, autism, reading and writing impairments, aphasia, dementia, voice and fluency disorders, hearing impairments, craniofacial abnormalities, neurogenic speech disorders, and articulatory and phonological disorders, among others.
The program integrates sensitivity to diversity into all its courses and clinical experiences. Our faculty members are active practitioners with extensive experience as clinical supervisors in diverse settings. Students work in small groups, enabling hands-on experience and direct interaction with peers and faculty.
