Giving everyone a voice.
Professional practice in communication sciences and disorders involves working with people who have disabilities of speech, language, swallowing, and hearing. A speech-language pathologist diagnoses and treats language, speech, and swallowing disorders. An audiologist provides diagnostic hearing and balance evaluations and aural rehabilitation services.
The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is a speech-language pathology program only. Students desiring to become audiologists must either earn the baccalaureate placement in Communication Sciences and Disorders at EWU and then apply to a university that offers an audiology program, or enroll from the outset in a university that has an audiology program.
