Speech-Language Pathology

Communication is an essential skill and one that develops across a person’s lifespan. The Speech-Language Pathology services at the Loyola Clinical Centers take a step-by-step approach to assess and treat a variety of communication disorders in children and adults.

Working with graduate student practitioners and professional clinicians at the LCC, clients receive assessments, as well as either one-on-one or group therapy sessions—or both—tailored to their individual speech and language needs. With clearly stated and mapped-out objectives, practitioners work with clients to help them reach their goals.

At the LCC, we take a family-centered and client-centered approach to intervention, working with the client and his/her parents, siblings, extended family, and/or spouses. Family members are encouraged to participate in therapy sessions and will have opportunities to observe as well as speak with the clinicians in order to help carryover skills from the LCC to other environments.

Voice Services now available at the LCC

The Loyola Clinical Centers offers comprehensive and client-centered treatment. The LCC offers services for adults and children who seek voice and communication training. With vocal health of utmost priority, services provided include adjustment of pitch, volume, intonation, voice quality, resonance, fluency, articulation, and communication style. Speech-Language Pathologists, who specialize in voice assessment and treatment, work collaboratively with an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) physician to provide comprehensive care. Along with evaluating and treating a variety of voice disorders, the LCC aims to be a community-based resource that offers a safe and supportive setting for all individuals along the gender spectrum as they explore voice and communication changes that more fully align with their gender identity and/or expression.  We also offer specialized voice therapy services targeting optimal vocal health and function for professional voice users, singers, and performers.
