Prior to an evaluation or treatment being scheduled, clients should complete and return all registration forms. We cannot confirm any appointment without a complete client file. You can download forms using the links below.
If you have received an evaluation at another clinic or have other reports such as a Hearing Screening, Psychological Evaluation or an Individualized Education Program (IEP), please include copies of those reports with your registration forms.
Please send completed forms via email to: SpeechClinic@buffalostate.edu, by fax to: (716) 878-3526 or mail them to:
Caudell Hall 149
1300 Elmwood Ave
Buffalo, NY 14222
*PLEASE NOTE: You should expect to receive a confirmation of receipt for registration forms that are emailed or faxed within 2 business days. If you do not receive a confirmation within this time frame, please call the clinic at (716) 878-3530 to ensure we received them successfully.
In order to determine if treatment is recommended, a comprehensive speech-language evaluation will be conducted. If a recent evaluation (completed within the last 6 months) has been completed at another clinic and the required testing administered, this evaluation may be waived upon submission of a full evaluation report (summaries cannot be accepted).
Evaluations are typically scheduled on Monday mornings and take about 2-3 hours to complete. Due to scheduling limitations, having an evaluation completed with us does not guarantee we will be able to admit an individual into the current treatment session. If we are unable to schedule you in the current session, we can provide a referral and/or you will be placed on a waitlist for the following session.
Once an evaluation is completed or an evaluation report is received (for evaluations completed at another clinic), treatment can be scheduled. We will make every effort to get you into the current session but cannot guarantee space will be available.
Treatment is scheduled in semester-long segments and clients are typically seen twice a week for 50 minutes at a time, in a 1:1 setting. Occasionally, small group treatment sessions are available. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Scheduling is done approximately 2-3 weeks before a session begins - scheduling estimates for each semester are listed below:
Fall Session - scheduling begins in mid-September
Spring Session - scheduling begins in mid-January
Summer Session - scheduling begins the first week of June
