Center for Speech, Language and Learning

Providing language, speech, voice and swallowing services for West Texas

Who we are:

The ACU Center for Speech, Language and Learning is part of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Abilene Christian University. The center is located at 1541 N Judge Ely Blvd, just southeast of the main ACU Campus.

Treatment services are provided by graduate students majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders. All services are provided under the direct supervision of licensed and certified speech-language pathologists.

We conduct comprehensive evaluations through the use of formal and informal testing. The outcome of an assessment is expressed in a written report including clinical findings and recommendations.

Frequency of treatment services is determined according to individual needs. Generally, clients are seen on an individual basis. Family and caregivers are involved in the intervention process for education and generalization of communication strategies.
