Welch-Schmidt Center for Communication Disorders
The Welch-Schmidt Center for Communication Disorders is an 8,600-square-foot self-contained unit located at University of Central Missouri. It is one of the finest facilities for clinical training in the country. Students provide diagnostic and rehabilitative services to communicatively handicapped children and adults from the community.
About Our Facilities
The center has nine therapy rooms and a central observation room complete with two way mirrors and audio monitoring. In addition, there is a speech language diagnostic suite, an early childhood communication disorders room, a materials and equipment area with a wide range of current diagnostic and therapy materials, a voice and swallowing laboratory, four audiology testing suites, an augmentative and alternative communication laboratory, clinician's workroom, a large conference room, and a modern, attractive reception area surrounded by faculty offices.
The center has the capability of videotaping sessions, and microcomputers and other electronic equipment are available for both research and teaching.
The center operates as a part of the university training program and functions as a public service to the university and the community. We actively follow a policy of nondiscrimination in regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, Vietnam Era veterans, and persons with handicaps and disabilities. Services are available upon request by appointment.
