Speech and Audiology Services

Dear Colleague,
The Communication Studies & Services Department (CSS) provides comprehensive audiology and speech-language services to all students enrolled at Rochester Institute of Technology and the National Technical Institute for the Deaf.

Licensed and certified audiology faculty and staff provide hearing and hearing aid evaluations, cochlear implant mappings, FM systems and fittings and aural rehabilitation. These faculty and staff members have extensive experience and knowledge of the needs of students with severe and profound hearing loss. Many of these services are provided at no cost to students of NTID/RIT.

Through the Hearing Aid Shop, students also can get hearing aid supplies/repairs, and new hearing aids. Students also can set up an appointment or meet with an on-call audiologist to discuss questions and receive services related to hearing loss, hearing aids, assistive devices, cochlear implant candidacy, etc. For medical needs, students can be seen by a physician at our on-campus Student Health Service on a walk-in basis. Board-certified otolaryngologists and ophthalmologists also are available, for consultation, in our Eye and Ear Clinic.

Speech-language faculty and staff meet with students individually to provide training in spoken language skill development. The Spoken Language Learning & Practice Lab (SLLPL) is a state- of-the-art lab where students have the opportunity to take advantage of a variety of instructional and technological opportunities designed to enhance speech and listening communication skills.

For more information, please contact me by phone, email or at the above address. We hope that you will review the CSS brochure which describes the scope of our services. We look forward to serving your students.
