The Buffalo State Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is a teaching program and the services we offer are provided by student clinicians pursuing their master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology, under the careful supervision of licensed Speech-Language Pathologists. The clinic follows the academic calendar and treatment and evaluations correspond with the fall, spring and summer semesters. Therapy sessions are scheduled for semester blocks of time with short breaks between semesters. Typically, therapy sessions are held twice per week for 50 minutes at a time.
Speech-Language Evaluations: A complete evaluation is conducted and recommendations for treatment are made, along with appropriate referrals. The evaluation typically takes about two hours and involves an interview, testing, clinical observation, and consultation with the family.
Audiology Evaluations: Complete diagnostic audiological evaluations are conducted to assess hearing and auditory processing status. If hearing loss is detected, recommendations are made concerning rehabilitative measures that may be of benefit to the individual.
Treatment: Once an evaluation has been completed, an appropriate intervention program is formulated to meet the individual's needs. This may involve individual or group treatment. Sessions are usually held twice a week for 50 minutes each. Family members may observe or participate in these sessions based on availability. Our facility has state-of-the-art computer equipment to assist in the diagnosis and remediation of a variety of disorders. Below is a list of treatment services and programs we offer.
Attendance Policy: To ensure maximum benefit from therapy services, consistent attendance is essential, as each session is important to progress. If a client is unable to maintain attendance for 80% of scheduled sessions, services may be discontinued at any point in the semester.
