The Norma S. and Ray R. Rees Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic at Cal State East Bay is a teaching clinic for students who are preparing for careers in Speech-Language Pathology. All clinical procedures are conducted by students under the supervision of certified and licensed professionals.
Our clinic provides speech and language evaluations and treatment, including the development of home programs. Treatment may be provided in individual, paired, or group sessions. We serve clients with communication problems associated with stroke, developmental delays, autism, hearing loss, stuttering, cognition impairment, articulation, the voice, and others.
We provide services for all age groups, ranging from preschool to senior citizens. Our clients come from all over the Bay Area, using both private and public transportation.
Our clinic offers sessions during the Fall and Spring semesters of Cal State East Bay's academic year. For information on summer sessions outside of the academic year, see our Rees Summer Communication Support Services webpage. There is a one-week break during the Fall and Spring sessions, aligning with university closures; university holidays are also observed. Clients are typically seen either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday for 50-minutes. Our first appointments start at 9:00 a.m. and last appointments at 4:00 p.m., though we occasionally are open until 7:00 p.m. Please note the 2019-2020 schedule below is currently tentative.
During the academic year, the clinic runs on a donation basis. Nominal materials fees are charged for evaluations and treatment. Payments can be made by cash, check, or credit card, and are accepted when services are provided.
As a donation-based clinic, we rely on and welcome donations. Thank you!

All can apply for services; no referral is required. An evaluation must first be done at our teaching clinic before therapy services can be considered.
It usually takes 3 weeks for us to schedule the evaluation, and if you are referred for therapy, a scheduling form will be provided for the next available session, during which a clinician and supervisor will be matched to the client.
