The USC Speech and Hearing Research Center provides a variety of evaluation and treatment
programs for individuals of all ages. The evaluation process aims to identify and
describe areas of strength and weakness related to articulation, language, voice,
hearing and fluency as well those factors that prevent or facilitate effective communication
in everyday life. Treatment programs are based on needs identified during the evaluation,
by capitalizing on an individual’s strengths and reducing barriers to effective communication.
Individual and/or group programming may be recommended and family/parent involvement
is strongly encouraged throughout the treatment process. Therapy is carried out under
the direction of certified speech-language pathologists and audiologists and involves
graduate-level clinical teaching and research. Individuals participating in services
at the Center may be asked to participate in research at any time during their treatment.
Our purpose is to provide individuals with communication disorders the highest quality
and most effective evaluation and treatment in order to improve social, educational
and vocational participation.
