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. 

What is the clinic schedule?

The Speech and Hearing Center is part of The George Washington University and operates on a semester based schedule for speech therapy (see chart below). Audiology services are offered year round with the exception of all University holidays, Fall Break, and Spring Break. In case of inclement weather, the clinic follows the Universities policies. If the University is delayed or closed, the clinic is delayed or closed as well.
