The University of North Texas Speech and Hearing Center has been serving people with speech, language, and hearing disorders since 1967. The Center strives to provide superior professional diagnostic and treatment services in speech-language pathology and audiology while providing excellence in clinical education for students in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of North Texas. Our showcase facility boasts a hearing aid dispensary, preschool language room, numerous therapy and diagnostic rooms, areas for families to observe clinical sessions, and ample parking.
Conveniently located near downtown Denton and Interstate 35, the center attracts clients from throughout northern Texas and southern Oklahoma. The Center averages 5000 client visits per year, with over 150 people receiving therapy on a weekly basis and more than 500 coming to have their speech, language, or hearing evaluated. The professional personnel include twenty speech-language pathologists and audiologists, all holding professional certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and licensure from the State of Texas.
The UNT Speech and Hearing Center provides services to clients in a non-discriminatory manner without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national or ethnic origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, genetic information, citizenship, or status as a covered veteran.
