Speech and Language
Sorenson Language and Communication Center 2200
Our team offers ASL, English and Spanish speech and language diagnostic and therapeutic services for pediatric and adult clients, as well as a range of community and group sessions, auditory (re)habilitation and communication therapies.
Auditory (re)habilitation (AR) encompasses a wide range of practices aimed at optimizing an individual’s ability to participate in activities that have been limited as a result of decreased hearing sensitivity. At the Hearing and Speech Center, we offer individualized AR sessions based on the client’s strengths and areas of difficulty. We address areas such as auditory training, speechreading, communication strategies, and expressive communication and language.

The Hearing and Speech Center employs speech language pathologists who are trained and certified in the latest diagnostic and therapeutic methodologies in the field. Our professionals provide adult services (for clients aged 18 and above) including assessment and treatment to address a client’s individual language strengths and needs.
