Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic

The Division of Speech and Language Pathology (SLP) at Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences opened the Binghamton University Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic in September 2022 to deliver speech and language therapy services to the community and provide clinical training opportunities for students.

This clinical service model provides clinical training to both undergraduate and graduate students. More importantly, the clinic expands access to speech and language therapy services in Broome County and the surrounding area.

Services Provided

Faculty in the Division of Speech and Language Pathology staff the programs listed below. Where indicated, services will also be available in a telehealth format.

  • After School Program

    Many children with communication disorders require expanded speech and language services beyond their current school services or are not receiving services in school despite a diagnosed need for therapy. A speech-language pathologist provides access to individual and group therapy for children with a variety of communication disorders at the end of the traditional school day. 

    Also available via telehealth: Yes

  • Aphasia Program

    People living with aphasia, the loss of speech due to brain injury, often experience social isolation, loss of friendships, reduced social network size and limited consistent contact with others. Although research supports participation in communication groups as a factor in aphasics' long-term success, no sustained local organizations offer both group therapy and individual therapy. This program provides those.

  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Program

    This program provides services to children and adults with complex communication needs. A speech-language pathologist who specializes in augmentative and alternative communication provides evaluations and intervention, focusing on language, literacy and social communication development.  In addition to individual therapy sessions, the program includes a parent and caregiver participation element.

    Also available via telehealth: Yes

    The Talk With Me! AAC group course is offered for adults over age 21 who use AAC and their caregivers.

  • Early Intervention and Preschool Program

    This program focuses on ensuring young children develop the speech and language skills critical to literacy development and academic success. In the greater Binghamton area, there are a limited number of providers to support preschoolers with communication disorders and their families.  A speech-language pathologist provides therapy services to children of preschool age in the community, with an emphasis on early literacy development. In addition to individual speech and language therapy sessions, a certified speech-language pathologist in the Hanen Program (a family-focused program for parents of children with communication disorders) is available for parent consultation and support. See additional details about early intervention therapy.

    Also available via telehealth: Yes

  • Parkinson's SPEAK OUT!® Program

    SPEAK OUT!, developed by the Parkinson Voice Project, is a therapy program tailored to people with Parkinson’s disease that focuses on improving communication. Participants attend individual sessions twice weekly. Following the individual therapy period, participants attend group sessions to use newly learned skills in a more functional social setting to promote confidence and generalization of abilities. See additional details about SPEAK OUT! therapy.

    Also available via telehealth: Yes

  • Social Skills Program

    This program prepares adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), social communication disorder (SCD) and neurodiversity for successful transitions into adulthood. The program offers a framework for teaching social communication skills and opportunities to practice generalizing skills learned in natural settings. Parents and caregivers are supported through a weekly group session.

    Also available via telehealth: Yes 

  • Stroke and Brain Injury Program

    After a stroke or other type of injury to the brain, patients often have difficulty with speech, language and cognitive skills. Patients with suspected communication or cognitive-linguistic deficits typically benefit from speech pathology services to assess and treat communication abilities in the following areas: listening, speaking, reading, writing, attention, recall and pragmatics. 

    Also available via telehealth: Yes

  • Stuttering Program

    Therapy is provided to adults, adolescents and children who stutter to address a significant gap in Southern Tier care delivery. People who stutter are at greater risk for reduced academic, social and occupational outcomes. The Stuttering Clinic provides individual and group sessions to support clients and their families.
