The Speech and Language Clinic serves the university and surrounding community by providing clinical services as part of the professional preparation of students in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
All students have had the necessary coursework and are closely supervised by certified, licensed speech-language pathologists. The clinic adheres to all recognized standards of ethical practice and relevant federal and state regulations.
The clinic provides evaluation and treatment services, usually on an individual basis, to children and adults who have a variety of communication disorders, including articulation, phonology, language, fluency and voice. The UWM Speech and Language Clinic provides equal access to services for all individuals regardless of age, race, religion, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, disability, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by federal or state law.

The clinic treatment programs start at the beginning of the fall, spring, and summer semesters. However, referrals are accepted throughout the year. Most therapy is scheduled one to two times per week, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Scheduling is dependent on clinical training needs and hours of availability.
The clinic bills minimal fees to help offset the cost of materials and equipment. There is a one-session cost for evaluations. Therapy fees are for the clinic term, not per session. There is a sliding fee scale based on the federal poverty guidelines for those experiencing financial hardship.
Clients are first required to have an evaluation by an otolaryngologist. Clients are seen one to two times per week for individual and/or group therapy.
