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,
several factors make our program unique. An explanation of these
factors and other information follows.
- Clinicians change schedules and rotate working with different
clients on a regular basis. Clients may have a different clinician
every semester. The purpose of this is to allow clinicians to have
a variety of experiences in their educational program.
- An observation room is provided for parents, siblings, and/or
spouses. Student clinicians are observed regularly by their
supervisors. In addition, other students who are majoring in CSD
may observe the treatment sessions.
- The Clinic respects the confidentiality of client records.
Permission slips for video and/or audio taping of treatment
sessions or for the releasing of information must be obtained from
the responsible party.
- The Butler Speech-Language Clinic observes the same holiday and
vacation schedules as the University. In the event of bad weather,
the clinic will follow the Butler University decision regarding
Sessions: Clinicians and
clients meet together for treatment one to two sessions per week.
The length of the session varies to accommodate the client and
ranges from 30-60 minutes.

semester of treatment sessions, scheduled one time a week, is $200.
If the semester fee is paid by the second week of treatment, you

session, payable after each session. (check or cash only).
Cancellation: If you need
to cancel a session, it is important to notify your clinician as
soon as possible. It is also important to notify the
Speech-Language Clinic at Butler (317-940-9012).
Conferences: At the end of
each session, there will be an opportunity for a brief discussion
with the clinician. In addition, at the end of the semester, the
clinician will schedule a conference with the client and/or parent
and present a written report of progress the client made throughout
