Graduate Studies Program in Listening & Spoken Language for Children with Hearing Loss

Meet Our Students

Utah State University offers a unique interdisciplinary Graduate Training Program for audiology, speech-language pathology, and deaf education that emphasizes Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) for teaching children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). This program is one of only two interdisciplinary programs in the United States that integrates the training for graduate students in Speech-Language Pathology, Audiology, and Deaf Education. Each cohort of students consists of approximately 5 SLPs, 2-3 AuDs, and 6-8 Deaf Educators who take many of their classes together, have shared practica experiences in the on-campus preschool program known as Sound Beginnings, and participate in a weekly seminar so that they learn to work together effectively and to capitalize on the valuable contributions of other professionals in serving children who are DHH. Check out the following video clips to learn more about what some of our students think about this unique program at Utah State University.
