Experience Speech-Language & Swallowing Services Personally Designed for You

The APSU Speech-Language & Swallowing Community Clinic serves clients across the lifespan with services available for those with delays or disorders in speech, language, fluency, and voice, including those with severe communication impairments requiring augmentative and alternative communication. The Speech-Language & Swallowing Community Clinic at Austin Peay also provides assessment and interventions for children and adults with feeding or swallowing difficulties due to developmental delays, congenital disabilities, or acquired disabilities such as traumatic brain injury, strokes, or neurological diseases.

Student-clinicians from Health and Human Performance Communication Sciences and Disorders undergraduate concentration and Speech-Language Pathology graduate program provide services personalized to client needs that will motivate individuals during their experience. Student-clinicians work under the direct supervision of an experienced speech-language pathologist certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Council on Clinical Certification and licensed by the Tennessee Board of Communication Disorders. With every single encounter, clinical educators and supervised student clinicians interact with clients in an attentive, respectful, and inclusive manner to develop rapport and promote human dignity to ensure all clients feel understood regardless of communication disability.

Our speech-language pathologists understand an inability to communicate, eat or swallow without difficulty can have a devastating impact on participation in all aspects of life. Our clinical delivery model engages clients in communication in every encounter with a focus on facilitating connections with family, friends, and others that will lead to meaningful social, vocational, and educational experiences.
