Enhance your ability to communicate.
At the Worcester State University Speech-Language-Hearing Center, we help people of all ages with communication disorders and differences, including difficulties with articulation, fluency, voice, language, and hearing.
The center is housed in Worcester State’s Communication Sciences and Disorders Department, and we partner with its Speech-Language Pathology master’s program to provide educational experiences to graduate students. Our students acquire knowledge and skills while delivering high-quality clinical, diagnostic, and intervention services under the attentive supervision of our staff. (HIPAA training and certification for our students is provided by HIPAA EXAMS, Inc.)We're open whenever Worcester State University is open—the schedule is based on the academic calendar:
We’ve been assisting the community for more than 35 years. We operate two clinics: the Speech-Language Clinic and the Hearing Clinic. These clinics are staffed by speech-language pathologists and audiologists certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
We accept referrals from any source. No fee is assessed for our services. Donations to the Worcester State Foundation are accepted to support graduate students and center operations. Fees are assessed for products.
