Valdosta State University Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic

The Valdosta State University (VSU) Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic is operated by the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and is under the James L. and Dorothy H. Dewar College of Education and Human Services. 

The clinic was founded in 1962 by the Valdosta Junior Service League and Valdosta State University. The clinic offers hearing evaluations, speech/language evaluations, and speech/language therapy to the community.  Services are provided by graduate clinicians, who are supervised by licensed and certified speech-language pathologists.

Our 25,350 square foot facility houses classrooms, faculty and staff offices, 11 therapy rooms, a full audiological suite, and a voice/speech science lab.  Therapy rooms feature an observation hall to allow caregivers to observe therapy sessions and a secure closed-circuit television system to allow clinical supervisors to observe therapy sessions.

The Clinic schedule follows the VSU academic calendar.  The spring session operates from January through April, the summer session operates from June and July, and the fall session operates from August through November.  No services are offered during the months of May and December.
