Our Mission

Our mission is to provide comprehensive and innovative hearing, speech, language, and balance services to the Gallaudet University and the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.

Our History

More than 160 years ago, Gallaudet University was established as a higher education institution for the Deaf community, creating opportunities for students to learn and grow together and, ultimately, flourish in society.

What Makes Us Unique?

We provide accessible client-centered care using an evidence-based practice while also giving our Doctoral Audiology (AuD) and Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) graduate students supervised, hands-on training.
