Part of the Community.

Since 1928 the center has been a trusted resource, providing communication and learning services to the community. We help hundreds of children and adults each year, extending our reach far beyond the university classroom.

Integrated Approach to Clinical Care.

Our clinical care is built on a foundation of research and innovation. University researchers and clinical faculty bridge their knowledge, making the center an invaluable resource for communicative health. Some clients engage in research as part of a treatment plan, and many research studies invite community participation. Our expert clinical faculty direct all levels of client care. All faculty clinicians are licensed and certified.

Teaching Center.

Northwestern’s professional graduate programs in communication sciences and disorders are among the best in the country, and the center provides clinical training for these future audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and learning disability specialists. Clinical faculty direct the residency-and-rotation teaching model founded on best practices and a comprehensive care approach that includes coordination with medical teams, educators, and families.

Virtual Sound Room (ViSoR).

The center’s state-of-the-art sound room allows clients to test hearing devices against different background noises and environments so that fittings can be fine-tuned and personalized. Other clients may also benefit from practicing communication strategies in a range of real-world settings.

Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and POS plans are accepted.

Discounts on select products and services may be available for Northwestern University faculty, students, and staff who hold a valid WildCard
