Clinics and Facilities
Camp Candoo is an intensive speech therapy and early literacy summer camp for children ages 5-12 with childhood apraxia of speech or other severe speech disorders held at the WSU Spokane campus. Therapy is provided by graduate level clinicians and supervised by educators who are certified speech-language pathologists and well-known experts in the field of childhood motor speech disorders with more than 50 years of combined clinical experience. The nine-day camp on the Spokane campus allows graduate students and faculty members to assess and provide intense speech therapy for the campers, many of whom come from out of state for this unique camp.
The University Hearing and Speech Clinic is a shared EWU/WSU facility open to the community, providing evaluation and therapy to children and adults with speech, language and hearing problems. Graduate students work under the supervision of nationally certified and state licensed speech-language pathologists to gain experiences in a medical setting.
