Our faculty and students focus on scholarship related to the special needs of people of all ages who benefit from a range of approaches to teaching, learning, or communication. We welcome all inquiries from students, professionals, community members, and families.

Teaching

Academic programs in communication sciences and disorders, special education, birth through kindergarten programs, American Sign Language, and other specialties reflect our fundamental belief that all people should be as independent as they can possibly be.

Research

We value high-quality research that generates new knowledge and we value the best possible applications of current knowledge.

Service

Through the UGA Speech and Hearing Clinic, the Applied Behavior Analysis Clinic, and other outreach activities, we share our expertise with those who may benefit from it.
