The Judd Leighton Speech and Language Clinic (JLSLC) at Saint Mary’s College is a free speech-language pathology clinic providing services for children and adults with communication disorders. Services are provided by student clinicians who are supervised by an American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) certified Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) who is licensed in the state of Indiana. We have our clinic run by Saint Mary's College Semesters (Spring, Summer, and Fall).The clinic is designed to offer SLP services to community members, and in turn, provide a complete educational experience to the Saint Mary’s College students in the Speech-Language Pathology undergraduate program and the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology program.

**The Department of Speech-Language Pathology is committed to serving the community and will work diligently to ensure that services can be made available each semester. When sessions become full, a waiting list for services will be implemented. We try our best to pull from the waitlist each semester. 

We are on a current waitlist, but we are more than happy to get you set up on the list. We do our best to pull from the waitlist each semester, but there is no set time frame we can give you on when you'll get an appointment. 

When South Bend Community School Corporation closes due to inclement weather, then the Judd Leighton Speech and Language Clinic will also CLOSE.

Speech Services available through the clinic include speech and language evaluations and treatments for children and adults who present with both acquired and developmental disorders in the following areas:

  • Articulation and phonological disorders

ECDC Notre Dame and Saint Mary's: 

We provide speech-language services to the kids at both ECDC. Services are provided by student clinicians who are supervised by an American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) certified Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) who is licensed in the state of Indiana. Services provided at ECDC would be the same services someone would receive if in our physical clinic.
