INFORMATION FOR CURRENT AND PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS

ENROLLMENT

In order to serve clients in the most informed manner possible, all new clients to the clinic must (1) complete a questionnaire and (2) submit any pertinent records regarding medical history, school services (e.g., IEP), and/or other evaluations or therapy history.  To obtain a copy of the questionnaire, please download it below and follow the application instructions.

The Clinic enrolls clients for speech-language therapy according to the university calendar for fall and spring semesters.  Therapy sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes two times per week Monday-Thursday or 100 minutes one time per week on Friday or Saturday.

Consistent with the University’s policies on non-discrimination (http://www.csulb.edu/divisions/aa/catalog/current/general_policies/nondiscrimination_policy.html), the Clinic provides services free from discrimination on the basis of race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnicity, gender/gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, age, pregnancy, and veteran status.

CLINICIANS

Graduate student clinicians provide all evaluation and therapy services under the direct supervision of faculty members who are nationally certified through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) as well as licensed by the State of California.

ATTENDANCE

Regular, punctual attendance by clients is essential to fully benefit from speech-language therapy.  In addition, student clinicians must accumulate clinical hours in order to obtain their graduate degrees.  For these reasons, missing more than 2 hours of therapy without advanced notice and preapproval may result in termination of services.  If you anticipate frequent absences due to illness or other scheduling issues, it is advised that you postpone enrollment.

Due to the educational nature of the CSULB Speech-Language Clinic, we reserve the right to make enrollment decisions based on the clinic staff’s professional judgment with respect to best meeting the needs of the client and/or the student clinician’s professional training experience.
