The Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic at Buffalo State was established in 1956. It's part of the Speech-Language Pathology Department, which is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA). Clinic services are provided by graduate students under the direct supervision of clinical faculty who are licensed by New York State and who hold the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC). Our clinic provides services for individuals across the lifespan who present with many types of disorders of communication. These disorders include clients who come for services to assess and treat articulation and phonological disorders, childhood language impairments, social language (pragmatic) disorders, aphasia, voice disorders, hearing disorders, fluency disorders, traumatic brain injury, and language-based literacy disorders. Because of our urban setting, students in our Master’s program have the opportunity to learn in a wide variety of externship sites. These include public, private, and special needs schools, hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and private clinics. When asked to reflect on what they most valued about their graduate experience at SUNY Buffalo State, most students cite the quality of clinical and classroom instruction and the diversity of clinical placements as the two factors that made them feel well prepared to enter the workforce as clinical fellows.
