CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Roy Eblen Speech and Hearing Clinic has effectively served thousands of preschool and school-aged children with various types of speech and language disorders. This includes children who are late-talkers, non-communicators, children with multiple speech and articulation challenges and many others.

UNI's speech-language pathology master's program is ranked ninth in the country, and routinely accepts only a fraction of the hundreds of applicants each year. Undergraduate students begin seeing patients as early as their junior year, and also receive practicum experiences in schools, preschools and community clinics to work with those in need. UNI also has the largest international program in the country for speech pathology.

"The faculty and staff have provided me with tremendous opportunities to excel, as an undergraduate and graduate student, that are unique to UNI," remarks Lindsay Woolston, a graduate student in speech-language pathology at UNI. "The professors are very involved in each student's academic success."
