Hy Weinberg Center for Communication Disorders

Provides speech, language and audiological services.

The principal functions of the Hy Weinberg Center for Communication Disorders are the preparation of undergraduate and graduate students in speech-language pathology and audiology; research in the areas of speech, language, and hearing disorders; and clinical service to the community. Students participate in supervised clinical experiences, observing and working with clients across the lifespan who present with a wide range of communication difficulties. These experiences include evaluation and treatment of speech, language, and hearing disorders. Students have the opportunity to participate in our innovative group therapy programs for toddlers, preschool-aged children, adolescents, and adults, including our social communication, aphasia, and caregiver groups. Additionally, students are provided with opportunities to observe or evaluate clients with auditory processing disorders, as well as assist the audiologist in the selection and fitting of hearing aids. The Center’s laboratories, containing instrumentation for the study of normal and disordered speech and hearing, enhance the quality of research, clinical education, and services provided. A video monitoring system enables students, clinical supervisors, and family members to observe clinical sessions. Student clinical education emphasizes the application of current theoretical principles and evidence-based practice to the administration of clinical procedures.

Signature group programs include:

  • TOTalk, a grown-up and me-style playgroup for late-talking toddlers
  • KIDTalk, a me-alone group for preschoolers
  • A social communication group for children and teens with high-functioning autism/Asperger’s syndrome
  • Social-communication groups for adults with aphasia
