Callier Center for Communication Disorders

Programs

Our speech-language pathologists work with adults in specialized therapeutic groups to address individualized goals as well as facilitate social interaction. This provides an optimum environment for learning and using skills in functional, meaningful contexts. Family members are an integral part of our group programs by partnering with our clinicians to develop goals and to help facilitate carryover and use of skills in the home environment.

Communication Learning Program (CLP)

Individuals who have suffered from a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other acquired brain injury have special needs that often extend beyond the intensive skilled treatment that they received during their initial recovery period. At this point in the rehabilitation process, these individuals have exhausted their insurance benefits and are no longer receiving skilled, medically necessary services. However, they may wish to pursue additional support. The Communication Learning Program (CLP) provides activities to support these individuals by helping them to practice and maintain their communication skills and thereby improve their quality of life.

CLP:

  • focuses on functional communication skills through use of compensatory strategies
  • is facilitated by graduate student clinicians under supervision of clinical faculty in speech-language pathology
  • includes individual and group experiences focused on maintaining speech, language and cognitive skills as well as developing strategies to improve everyday communication
