About the Bookhardt Family Speech-Language Clinic

The Bookhardt Family Speech-Language Clinic at MSU Denver is an important part of the University’s graduate program in speech-language pathology.  In our clinic, graduate students provide services under the direct supervision and guidance of licensed and certified speech-language pathologists (SLPs).  Our clinic is open to members of the Auraria Campus and greater Denver community and serves individuals of all ages.  All of our services are available in English, Spanish, or through a bilingual approach using English and Spanish simultaneously.  

Our on-campus clinic is located on the first floor of the Central Classroom Building. The Auraria Campus is just west of Speer Blvd and downtown Denver. 

Services are offered free of charge. We aim to expand access to services and decrease health disparities in the greater Denver community.  If possible, we encourage you to support the speech-language clinic and the education of our graduate students by designating a gift to the speech-language clinic here.

Adult Services

We provide comprehensive treatment for adults with acquired speech, language, voice, fluency or swallowing disorders or communication differences. All services are free of charge and no insurance is required.  

Our services are perfect for individuals who have run out of insurance coverage for speech-language or swallowing therapy. You can also add our services onto therapies you are receiving elsewhere. If you have never worked with a speech-language therapist before, that’s OK too. We can do a full evaluation and create a treatment plan with you.  

As an adult client in our clinic, you will work closely with your graduate clinician to create your goals. Our treatment plans are individualized so we will incorporate your family or caregivers and your interests into your sessions.  

Pediatric Services

We provide comprehensive treatment for children ages birth through 18 with developmental or acquired speech, language, voice, and fluency disorders or differences. All services are free of charge and no insurance is required.  

Our services are perfect for individuals who have run out of insurance coverage for speech-language or swallowing therapy. You can also add our services onto therapies you are receiving elsewhere like the schools or private clinics. If you have never worked with a speech-language therapist before, that’s OK too. We can do a full evaluation and create a treatment plan with you.  

Our graduate clinicians will work closely with your family to create goals for your child that include their interests and preferences.  Our treatment plans are individualized so we will make sure we are working on things that will help your child improve their communication in their day-to-day lives.  

Evaluation

Comprehensive Evaluations: Our students use a combination of standardized assessments, informal assessments, and dynamic assessments to help identify your communication needs. You’ll work together with the graduate clinician to develop your goals and identify ways to address your goals that will lead to improvements in your overall communication.  

Bilingual Services

All services can be offered in English or Spanish, or a bilingual approach using both languages simultaneously. Graduate clinicians providing these services are part of our bilingual specialization. They receive additional coursework directly related to bilingual language development and bilingual service provision. Supervising SLPs are also bilingual English/Spanish speakers.
