Lehman College Speech and Hearing Center Expands Services for Stroke Victims

August 25, 2008 | Lehman College

Lehman College’s Speech and Hearing Center is now accepting new clients in its recently expanded aphasia clinic, which serves patients who have suffered a stroke. The clinic provides individual and group therapy sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-1 p.m. and 2-3 p.m.; group therapy sessions also take place on Tuesdays from 1-2 p.m.

The Lehman Speech and Hearing Center has provided therapy, on a sliding payment schedule, for members of the community since 1968. Both diagnostic and therapeutic sessions are supervised by faculty members who are licensed by the New York State Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and certified by the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA).

Among the communication disorders treated are delayed language development, hearing loss, foreign accent reduction, voice, aphasia, and autism spectrum disorders, stuttering, and dysphasia and motor speech disorders.

The Center was renovated in 2004 with cutting-edge technology and facilities, including six therapy rooms, a master control station, four observation stations, and an observation classroom.

For more information on enrolling in the aphasia clinic, call Wanda Adams at 718-960-8138.

A senior college of the City University of New York, Lehman is located on Goulden Avenue and Bedford Park Boulevard West in the northwest Bronx and is accessible by bus as well as the #4 and “D” subway lines. Free attended parking is available.
