For graduate students in the OSU Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, the OSU Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is the best way to earn patient contact hours necessary for graduation and licensing. OSU moving its classes online through the summer in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has created a major challenge for those students.
“We have been seeing our limited number of patients through teletherapy,” said Ramesh Kaipa, head of the department. “We really want to increase that number over the summer, both for the benefit of patients who utilize our services and to help the graduate students. This is a great way to assist both groups in a safe manner.”
The clinic provides comprehensive diagnostic services, treatment and education regarding speech, language and feeding in children and adults in Stillwater and the surrounding communities. It offers therapy services for the following disorders: articulation, phonology, voice/resonance, cognitive-communication, aphasia, receptive and expressive language, SPEAK OUT! And LOUD Crowd programs, reading and writing, accent modification, fluency (stuttering), motor speech, swallowing/feeding, and alternative augmentative communication (AAC).
It is committed to providing quality speech, language and hearing services, regardless of ability to pay. Medicare and Sooner Care are accepted, as well as private insurance. A sliding scale based on income and family size is used to determine cost of services for those without insurance and the ability to pay the regular amount.
