Now through May 1, Fresno State’s Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic is offering free hearing evaluations to the campus community and general public. Evaluations will be held Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the on-campus Audiology Clinic. The two-hour evaluations test for hearing loss, and if one is detected, the type and severity of the loss will also be determined.
Appointments must be made in advance by completing a case history form, available online. Upon approval, an appointment may be scheduled based on availability. Appointments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis as the number of evaluations are limited during the semester. Clients must be at least 3 years old.
The comprehensive evaluations provide advanced clinical training and research opportunities for Speech Language Pathology students, who are supervised by licensed and nationally certified audiologists.
Hearing evaluations are free of charge, but a suggested donation of $20 is appreciated, although not required. Donations help fund clinical supplies, assessment materials and technology equipment which help sustain the program. Placement in the Audiology Clinic is not contingent upon a donation.
The Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic, housed in the Department of Communicative Sciences and Deaf Studies, serves over 650 clients each year and provides much-needed clinical experience for graduate students. The clinic relies solely on client and community donations to operate. Please consider making a gift at the link, which will allow the clinic to continue serving the Central Valley region.
