Graduate students participate in diagnostic and clinical services for children and adults in the University of Montevallo’s Speech and Language Center within the department. In addition, graduate students participate in field-based experiences in early intervention, preschool programs, public schools, private practice, and medical facilities. Graduate students participate in two field-based internships during the final semester of graduate study.
