How do I schedule an appointment?

Call the GW Speech & Hearing Center at 202-994-7360, and inform the staff of the type of service you are seeking.

  • If you need speech-language evaluation and/or therapy, intake information will be collected and your inquiry will be forwarded to the Speech-Language Pathologist with expertise in your area of need. Due to the high volume of clients calling, and the minimal number of new clients per semester, acceptance to our program cannot be guaranteed, however placement on a waiting list is available. 
  • If you need any hearing evaluation, hearing aid or cochlear implant services, an appointment with an Audiologist will be scheduled. Although the Center opens at 8:30 am, appointments start at 9:00 am.
