The Corbett Clinic is operated within the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine. Students in the Master of Speech-Language Pathology program provide assessment and treatment for clients of all ages under the supervision of staff in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
Clients at Corbett Clinic are served by a treatment team which includes students and a clinical supervisor, resulting in personalized and outstanding client service. The types of clients seen at Corbett Clinic will vary during the year, based on the clinical and educational needs of the students providing services.
Each client receives a complete assessment and at least one term of treatment services. Treatment is offered over 12 week terms, and sessions typically occur two times per week for 45 minutes.
Students complete their first two introductory placements through Corbett Clinic under the supervision of staff in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The clients range in age from preschool through geriatrics and present a wide range of developmental and acquired speech and language disorders.
Collaborative treatment and learning teams are used within Corbett Clinic. In the introductory placements, clients are served by a treatment team which includes the client/family, two direct student clinicians, two consulting student clinicians and a clinical supervisor. Treatment teams are presented with clinical problems and use a team method to solve them. This results in both clinical and interpersonal development for the students and produces outstanding client service.
