COVID-19 Response

The Stanley Center for Speech and Language Disorders at Stephen F. Austin State University is now providing in-person as well as teletherapy appointments for clients of all ages.

Services include evaluation and treatment of individuals who have difficulty communicating due to articulation, voice, fluency, language or cognitive impairments (for example, post-stroke issues or traumatic brain injury) or who have issues with swallowing.

Speech and language evaluations are $75, and speech therapy sessions are $15 per session. The clinic also offers student and employee rates as well as sliding-scale rates based on annual income.

The clinic also offers speech therapy to those with Parkinson's disease at no charge via face-to-face and teletherapy sessions. As the pandemic continues, clinic staff members are following COVID-19 guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Safety provisions we have put in place include mask or face shields worn by student clinicians and staff, plexiglass barriers in therapy rooms, cleaning and sanitizing therapy rooms frequently and conducting health screenings on all clients and students before they enter the clinic.
