Expansion of Clinical Services!

Things are really starting to roll again at the ACU Center for Speech, Language & Learning as the new school year comes closer!  As you are all aware, the on campus clinic moved into the Duncum Center last January.  We still have to pinch ourselves to believe we get to welcome our clients into this beautiful space!  In an effort to be good stewards of our new location and to maximize our service provision potential, our goal this year is to increase our on campus clinic from being open 2 days each week to 5 days each week.  As you can imagine this means juggling student schedules just a bit and finding supervisors to cover more time slots.  So far, so good!  We are thrilled to offer more appointment times each week to accommodate our wide range of client needs!

In addition to our on campus clinic, the ACU Communication Sciences & Disorders program continues to have its hand in other community programs needing speech pathology services as well, such as:  King David’s Kids, Disability Resources, Inc., Kenley School, Aldersgate Academy and Abilene Christian Schools.  This year we are also excited to begin collaboration with Children of Light Daycare just down the street from our campus.  These satellite clinical sites are supervised by ACU faculty and provide a rich variety of clinical experiences for our graduate clinicians.  And, we’re always on the lookout for new places in Abilene where our students can serve others while honing their skills!
