Thank you for your inquiry concerning the Butler University
Speech-Language Clinic. Our clinic is located on the Butler
University campus in Jordan Hall. There are two purposes of the
Butler Clinic. First and foremost, our clinic serves those
individuals who experience difficulties with communication.
Secondly, our clinic provides an educational experience for
students who intend to become speech-language pathologists. Student
clinicians provide treatment services and diagnostic evaluations
under the supervision of an Indiana State licensed and American
Speech-Language-Hearing Association certified speech-language
pathologist or audiologist. Because this is an educational program,

spouses. Student clinicians are observed regularly by their
