The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) discovers and teaches the fundamental mechanisms underlying our ability to hear, understand, speak, and swallow. Our research defines clinical practice now and in the the future, and we need your help to continue our cutting-edge work. Together, we can discover new knowledge and improve lives across the globe.
Can we count on you to support the work of Purdue clinics that evaluate and treat speech, language, hearing, and cognitive disorders?
With some of the highest-ranked programs in Indiana, SLHS is internationally recognized for our scientists, educators, and students. Two of our on-campus clinics, the Steer Speech, Language, and Swallowing Clinic and the Steer Audiology Clinic, provide patient treatment and allow students to learn through observing and volunteering. Hearing screenings are offered to the community at no cost several times per year.
“Being a resident of West Lafayette and a mom of a child with bilateral hearing loss, I know personally how blessed we are to have the caring and expert team of audiologists and staff available to us at the Steer Audiology Clinic. My son has been helped by his talented audiologist and numerous Purdue students since he was an infant. He is thriving because of the time this clinic has invested in him.”
