Scheduling Availability for Speech-Language Pathology Services

As a University-based Center, we are committed to providing our graduate student clinicians with a variety of disorders that will prepare them for future independence.  As a result, in order to properly provide them with a meaningful education, the number of clients per semester is limited.  Therefore, acceptance to our program cannot be guaranteed, however placement on a waiting list is available.  If accepted into the program, clients are expected to maintain regular and punctual attendance.  If frequent absence or tardiness occurs, we reserve the right to dismiss the client from our program. 

The GWU Speech and Hearing Center does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap, or veteran status. The University is subject to the District of Columbia Human Rights Law. Inquiries concerning the applications of the policy and federal laws and regulation concerning discrimination may be directed to Dr. Marianne R.
