Welcome to the ENMU Speech and Hearing Rehabilitation Outreach Center information page.

 

The Speech and Hearing Rehabilitation Outreach Center at Eastern New Mexico University, affectionately known as the "Speech Clinic" by the CDIS students, provides high quality and affordable services to clients of all ages. We serve as a regional diagnostic and treatment center to help clients with a variety of communicative disorders. Our clinical services are available to the general public and are provided by both ENMU faculty, and CDIS graduate students under the supervision of a certified and licensed CCC-SLP (Speech-Language Pathologist) or CCC-A (Audiologist).

 

Clinical Mission

The Speech and Hearing Rehabilitation Outreach Center operates as a teaching clinic to provide an active learning environment in which undergraduate and graduate students observe and participate in the assessment and management of communication disorders through supervised clinical experiences.

Our mission is twofold:

  1. To meet the needs of the community and to better serve those having communicative impairments by providing high quality but affordable diagnostic and rehabilitative services.
  2. To provide an educational venue whereby CDIS students may obtain active learning practicum experiences within certification guidelines as specified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
