HU clinic gets special recognition award
The Hampton University Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic (HUSLHC) received a Special Recognition Award at the Office of Human Affairs (OHA) Board of Directors’ 47th annual awards banquet. The clinic is the training arm of the University’s Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders.
Clinic Director Cheryl Freeman accepted the award, which was presented at a May ceremony at the Marriott Newport News at City Center. The clinic, located on HU’s campus, was recognized for its work with children with speech, language and hearing disorders. Students and staff from the clinic have been affiliated with OHA for more than 30 years. Student clinicians from the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders have screened children for OHA’s Pre-K initiative Program, and provided evaluation and treatment sessions to improve communication, cognition and literacy skills.
“The faculty and students of the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders are honored that our outreach programs have been recognized for their years of service to the programs of the Office of Human Affairs and to the community,” Freeman said.
