Posted by: Valentina Caval on September 26, 2013, No Comments

The Department of Speech-Language Pathology at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania (ESU) invites the public to an open house to celebrate its new campus location on Thursday, October 3, from 4 – 7 p.m. on the second floor of Monroe Hall.

The Speech and Hearing Center at Monroe Hall features all of the equipment and accommodations essential to a quality educational program in speech-language pathology. The clinic serves people of all ages, infancy through adult, from the surrounding Pocono area, the Lehigh Valley and New Jersey as well as students, faculty and staff from ESU who are in need of rehabilitation/habilitation services. Here, graduate students gain hands-on experience with clients who exhibit various types of communication disorders.  A state-of-the-art observation room allows parents, guardians and spouses to observe their loved ones in therapy. The therapy rooms are spacious, private and have increased in number.  

The open house will include tours of the new lab, the clinic, and classroom facilities. There will also be a demonstration of the observation system and a chance to identify department students, faculty and staff from old photos. This is a free event and refreshments will be provided.

The newly renovated 29,000-square-foot Monroe Hall opened in 2012. Formerly a residence hall, the building now contains two computer laboratories, four classrooms, a 68-seat stepped auditorium, and offices. The building also houses the communication studies department. 

Anyone interested in seeking speech, language or hearing therapy services, including evaluations, intervention and audiological services should contact the speech-language pathology department at 570-422-3247. For further information on the open house please contact Elaine Shuey, Ph.D., professor and chair of speech-language pathology, at 570-422-3681.
