Norma S. and Ray R. Rees Speech Language and Hearing Clinic

COVID-19 (coronavirus) UPDATE 

Due to continuing recommendations on how best to prevent any spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), and in the interest of protecting the health of our speech-language pathology program’s community of clients, caregivers, students, faculty and staff, the Rees Clinic will be providing speech therapy services via TELEPRACTICE for the Summer term and is expected to continue so for the Fall semester.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at clinic@csueastbay.edu 

Who we are

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. 

What we do

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.

TELEPRACTICE is the use of live-streaming to provide speech therapy, linking clinicians to clients who are an appropriate fit for this model. Telepractice is shown to be as effective as in-person consultation. Clinicians must follow the same Code of Ethics and Scope of Practice in Speech-Language Pathology, as well as state and federal laws. To participate, clients should have a device with camera and microphone, and reliable internet access. Clients who are under the age of 18 must have an adult present. Adult clients who would benefit from guided support should also have another adult present to help. 

Who we serve

We provide services for all age groups, ranging from preschool to senior citizens. Services are scheduled without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, gender, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, genetic information, medical condition, marital status, veteran status, or disability.  Please see our Equal Opportunity statement.

When we meet

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. 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 that the university remains open for many typical school closures.  

The Fall schedule will be posted as we finalize TELEPRACTICE therapy planning.

What it costs

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.

  • On-site Evaluation - $25
  • On-site Treatment - $40
  • Telepractice - no fee 

As a donation-based clinic, we rely on and welcome donations. Thank you!
