Clinical Practice

The Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology is oriented toward the achievement of clinical competence and certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Both assessment and treatment of speech, language, and hearing disorders are conducted by students and faculty in the University of Northern Iowa's Roy Eblen Speech and Hearing Clinic and at a variety of satellite centers. Clinical experiences include assignments on diagnostic teams, language group therapy, instruction of multiply handicapped children, and working with children and adults with organic and functional disorders of communication. Graduates are prepared to provide services to speech, language, and hearing impaired persons in various educational and clinical settings.
