For over 47 years, the Center has provided quality diagnostic and treatment programs for individuals of all ages from the greater metropolitan area of Columbia, S.C. Because the Center is housed within the COMD department, it always benefits from being informed by the latest research in the field, with the researchers sharing office space and often seeing patients as well. Through excellence in teaching, service, and research, the Center aims to meet the needs of this diverse community with regard to the nature, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders and disabilities.

The team works to give clients the highest quality and most effective evaluation and treatment in order to improve their social, educational and vocational participation. The Center serves individuals of all ages with problems such as articulation, stuttering, selective mutism, voice, language and literacy/reading, Parkinson’s, hearing, etc., logging 6,000 patient visits and approximately 225 patient outreach hours per year. The Center also houses one of only two Cochlear Implant/Auditory-Verbal Programs in the state and helps prepare the next generation of speech-language pathologists and communication science and disorders researchers.
