Application and Selection Process

Truesdail Center for Communicative Disorders at University of Redlands is an educational program that provides clinical service in speech-language pathology and audiology for infants, children and adults with communicative disorders.  Clinical services are conducted by graduate students under the direct supervision of clinical supervisors who are certified by the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association (ASHA).

The center follows a traditional academic school year calendar.  Services are available during the fall and spring semesters.  As a training program, candidate’s evaluations and intervention are made on a selection basis.  Each professor specializes in a clinical population, therefore a variety of client ages and severities are considered in this process.  This process, along with a large volume of applications, requires the use of a waiting list.

There is no estimation of how long an application would be on the waiting list.  You will be notified when space is available to begin the process of admission into the clinic.  There is no financial obligation to be placed on the waiting list.

If you would like to be considered for services, please complete the application and return it by mail to Truesdail Center, University of Redlands, P.O. Box 3080, Redlands, CA 92373-0999 or email it to Cindy Pike.  It is beneficiary for us to receive any prior reports of evaluations completed by other agencies.  These reports provide information to use in planning the evaluation and allow us to avoid the repetition of standardized testing.  Please have these reports forwarded to us.

The suggested evaluation donation is $125.00.  Evaluations last from one to three hours depending on the needs of the client.  Following the evaluation, a conference will be held to discuss findings and recommendations for treatment followed with a written summary of the evaluation and recommendations that will be mailed to you. Completing an evaluation does not guarantee immediate enrollment in a therapy program.

Clients recommended for treatment at the Center will be assigned a student clinician at the earliest available opportunity.  Assignments are typically made on a semester basis to conform to the academic schedule.  Clients accepted into the program are expected to attend a full semester with a minimal number of absences.  Suggested donations for each semester of therapy are $250.00.  The length of intervention services range from 1 to 3 semesters.
