Frequently Asked Questions - Speech, Language & Hearing Clinic
What services are available?
The clinic provides a full range of services, including evaluation, treatment and consultation for communication disorders. Graduate students work under the direct supervision of certified, licensed faculty members in providing services to help clients maximize their communication abilities.
Types of disorders evaluated and treated at the clinic include:
- language delay and disorders
- misarticulation of sounds
- voice disorders
- cleft palate
- cerebral palsy
- cognitive impairment
- other neurological impairments
- hearing impairment
Services are also provided to individuals who are nonspeaking and use augmentative or alternative communication aids, and to persons who want to enhance communication skills such as pitch, projection, accent reduction, and non-verbal communication.
Complete audiological testing services are provided at the clinic. These include screening for hearing loss and middle ear disorders as well as complete peripheral hearing sensitivity and central auditory processing assessments. Hearing evaluations to determine candidacy for hearing aids are conducted, but hearing aides are not dispensed.
Where is the clinic located?
The clinic is located in Room 101 of Montgomery Hall on the UND campus in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Montgomery Hall is on the south side of University Avenue, just west of the Chester Fritz Library. Patient parking is available just south of Montgomery Hall or in nearby University parking lots.
The clinic's facilities include a waiting room, offices, and rooms for evaluation and treatment of speech and language problems. These rooms are equipped with one-way observation windows. The clinic also houses sound-treated suites for hearing tests and equipment for performing complete audiological evaluations.
The University of North Dakota is an equal opportunity/affirmative action institution. 12-99, #6246
How does one contact the clinic?
An initial appointment is arranged by calling (701) 777-3232, by visiting the clinic in person, or by writing:
Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic
Grand Forks, ND 58202-8040
Clients are seen by appointment only. Inquiries, however, are welcome at any time. All inquiries are treated confidentially.
When is the clinic open?
Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Since the clinic is an educational facility within the University, the clinic schedule coincides with UND’s academic calendar; therefore, services may not be available for brief periods between semesters. The clinic is open during the summer session.
The clinic is a non-profit service, academic and research facility at UND and therefore is funded by state appropriations to the University. However, a fee schedule has been established to provide funds to purchase, maintain and replace materials and equipment necessary for optimal clinic operation. Services are provided free of charge to UND students, except for advanced audiological evaluations. No individual is ever denied services because of an inability to pay.
UND's Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is accredited in Speech-Language Pathology by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
