Catch the Fall
Hearing Clinic Located in Villard
Offers Speech and Hearing Tests
Hearing tests and remedial
speech services are among those
offered by the speech and hearing
clinic, located in Villard Hall.
Services offered by the clinic
were explained recently by Dr.
Kenneth Scott Wood, associate
professor of speech, and director of
Audiometer tests are offered for
students wishing to check their
hearing. “I suspect there are stu
dents on the campus who have sig
nificant hearing loss who are not
aware of it,” Dr. Wood stated,
adding that “A person with a hear
ing loss should certainly know of
it.” Appointments may be made
with Dr. Wood.
A second service is offered for
those who stutter or have other
types of blocking spasms when
they talk. This group will meet
from 4 to 5 Mondays at 105 Villard.
In addition to group work an indi
vidual program will be arranged
for each person.
Students with foreign language
backgrounds who wish to improve
the intelligibility of their speech
will meet from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tues
days in the clinic. “This service is
not primarily concerned with
grammar or vocabulary, but aims
to achieve greater intelligibility of
English speech sounds,” Dr. Wood
A fourth service is aimed at aid
ing students with articulatory
speech defects such as lisping,
sound substitution, and problems
in voice quality or volume. These
cases are treated individually or
in small groups.
