The Memphis Speech and Hearing Center was established in 1947 by the Board of Directors of The Memphis Speech and Hearing Center, Inc. to provide a full range of clinical services to individuals with communication disorders. Since 1967, the Center has been affiliated with The University of Memphis, and is the site of The U of M's School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. State-of-the-art research laboratories and a graduate education program, combined with the Center's well-respected clinical program, make it one of the premiere speech and hearing facilities in the Mid-South.
The Center's professional staff provides speech, language, and hearing evaluations and offers treatment programs tailored to individual needs. A wide array of diagnostic equipment and materials makes it possible to evaluate communication problems experienced by clients of any age, from infants to adults. Based on evaluation results, clinicians work with clients, parents, and families to develop appropriate, functional treatment plans.
