SHROC (Speech & Hearing Clinic)
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).
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:
Speech, Language, and Swallowing Services
The ENMU SHROC provides diagnostic and rehabilitative services to clients with hearing impairments, deafness, autism spectrum disorders, language and literacy disabilities, learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, and developmental delays, as well as those who have suffered a brain injury, stroke or other acquired progressive neurological disorders such as Parkinson's. We also provide services to those who stutter, for those who have difficulty pronouncing words, for clients who are having trouble with their voice, and for clients who have been affected by cleft lip or palate. Services are provided on campus or via telepractice. We also run aphasia, and social skills support groups. We house an augmentative and alternative communication lab, a speech science lab, and can also provide an endoscopic and stroboscopic assessment of voice, swallowing, and resonance. Our speech-language services include diagnosis and treatment of the following disorders and difficulties:
