HAYS, KS � Fort Hays State University's Geneva Herndon Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is accepting appointments for evaluations or treatment services for children and adults who may suffer from communication disorders.
The clinic is the only university affiliated clinic in western Kansas and it helps to meet the needs of communicatively handicapped people from this geographical area. The speech pathologists, certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, supervise student clinicians as they provide diagnostic, early intervention and rehabilitation services for people with communication disorders.
A communication disorder occurs when one person cannot be easily understood by another. Disorders may occur in several areas. Language problems, articulation problems, fluency problems and voice problems are all among the parameters of communication disorders the clinic diagnoses and treats regularly.
Complete audiology evaluations are also performed at the clinic to determine whether hearing loss is a factor in the communication problem and if treatment in this area is needed.
The clinic in Malloy Hall, room 201, is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Services are available at the clinic on an appointment basis. To schedule an appointment or for more information, call (785) 628-4450 or (785) 628-5366, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, visit the clinic's web site at www.fhsu.edu/commdis/GHClinic.html or write to the Herndon Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, Fort Hays State University, 600 Park Street, Hays, KS 67601-4099.
