COVID-19 UPDATE, 4.20.2020
COVID-19 (coronavirus) UPDATE
To continue to support our clients and the community during this difficult time, the University of Delaware Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic has transitioned to a virtual clinic and is able to use telepractice to provide speech and language assessments and treatment across the lifespan.
We have limited openings for new clients at this time (both pediatric and adult). If you are interested in scheduling an evaluation via telepractice, please contact us at 302-831-7100 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please know that we will try to prioritize care for individuals with time-sensitive rehabilitation needs and those who do not currently have access to care otherwise.
Our physical space will be closed until further notice; however, we invite our community members to join one of our Life Participation groups to continue to connect virtually during the COVID-19 crisis. Our current virtual groups include:
The Neuro Notes – A choir for people with Parkinson’s, stroke survivors, and others with neurologic communication challenges. The group meets each Tuesday night at 6:30PM
The Aphasia Brew Crew – A conversation coffee house on Tuesday mornings at 10:30AM for individuals with aphasia and their care partners.
The Aphasia Movie Club – Watch the movie of the week on your own and come prepared for a lively discussion! This group meets every other Friday at 11:30AM.
The National Stuttering Association Support Group – This group meets on the 3rd Monday of the month from 6:30-7:30PM for individuals who stutter to meet and discuss challenges and successes with stuttering.
The Loud Crowd – A virtual practice group for individuals who have graduated from the SPEAK OUT! voice program for people with Parkinson’s disease.
If you are interested in participating in any of these groups, please call 302-831-7100 or by email at email@example.com. Participation is free and open to individuals who have not received services with the UD Speech-language-Hearing Clinic.
