Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning
The Northwestern University Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning offers clinical care built on a foundation of knowledge, expertise and compassion to help infants through older adults strengthen everyday communication and cognitive abilities.
Our specialized services address a host of hearing, learning, speech-language, and swallowing challenges affected by speech-language difficulties, hearing loss, learning disabilities, autism, stroke and cancer recovery, and other issues. Clinical faculty members direct services in partnership with medical teams, educators and other professionals to ensure comprehensive care for each client.
Established in 1928, the Center intersects clinical expertise and pioneering research with an unswerving commitment to patient care — providing trusted, evidence-based services to the community.
Expert clinical faculty
Our services are directed by true experts – clinical faculty who teach the science and are accomplished practitioners – bringing exceptional knowledge and experience to our clients.
A trusted community resource just got better
Our long-standing commitment to high-quality, evidence-based client care is enhanced by our new state-of-the-art facility with an accessible, comfortable setting and free covered parking. The new facility opened in January 2015.
More than a clinic
We also conduct innovative research in the clinic and actively teach future professionals new knowledge and clinical techniques based on scientifically validated evidence. Our graduate healthcare programs — ranked in the Top 10 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report — train future professionals to be leaders in their fields. There is no other clinic quite like us in Chicagoland.
