Free screenings at Purdue to test hearing, speech and language

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University’s M. D. Steer Audiology and Speech-Language clinics are offering free hearing, speech and language screenings on May 27 as part of Better Hearing and Speech Month.

The screenings are from 9:00a to noon in Heavilon Hall, Room B-11, and are free and open to adults over the age of 18. Appointments are recommended and can be made in advance by calling 765-494-4229. Walk-ins will be based on availability.

The 15-minute screenings are performed by clinical instructors and graduate students from the M.D. Steer Audiology and Speech-Language Clinics. Goals of Better Hearing and Speech Month are to increase public awareness of hearing loss, the effects of noise on hearing, the effects of hearing loss on speech and language communication, as well as increase knowledge of speech and language development, speech and language communication disorders for adults resulting from disease or injury, swallowing disorders, and diagnostic and treatment options available.

The M.D. Steer Audiology and Speech-Language Clinics are home to a variety of professional diagnostic and rehabilitative services. A referral is not required for access to these services. All students in the accredited clinical programs gain clinical experience while working with patients under the direct supervision of their clinical faculty mentors.

The clinics are part of the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, which is housed in the College of Liberal Arts.
