Presentation Type

Open Access Poster Presentation

Abstract

What limits access to speech-language pathology services in your community? This presentation will address the six dimensions of access that impact services provided in university-sponsored clinics across the United States. The concept of access has been widely studied in health care literature but has not been examined in the service delivery model of on-campus speech, language, and hearing clinics. This presentation will discuss the results of a survey related to topics of client populations, materials, referrals, accessibility, and other considerations. Recommendations for reframing recruitment and service delivery will be shared to promote outcomes for all individuals who could benefit from university clinical services.
