UW Clinic Offers Free Services
May 14, 2012 — The University of Wyoming Speech and Hearing Clinic is offering free services this summer.
Located in Room 160 of the Health Sciences Building, the UW clinic is open 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays. To make an appointment for an evaluation, consultation or treatment, call (307) 766-6426.
The clinic serves people of all ages with a variety of communication, cognitive, hearing and swallowing disorders, says clinic Director Lynda Coyle.
"These include difficulty with speaking, understanding, reading, and swallowing due to developmental delays or acquired brain injury or diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's," Coyle says. "We also offer accent modification for speakers of English as a second language."
The clinical services are provided by graduate students supervised by licensed and certified speech-language pathologists. The clinic is equipped with treatment and observation suites so that family members and graduate students can observe sessions without intrusion.
For more information, call Coyle at 766-5714 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
