La Trobe Communication Clinic

The La Trobe Communication Clinic provides high quality speech pathology services to the community from the University's Bundoora campus or via telehealth.

Our Clinic offers a range of evidence-based services in voice, fluency (stuttering), and preschool speech and language. It is equipped with ten clinical spaces with adjacent observation rooms for teaching purposes.

Our clinical programs are delivered by students working under the direct supervision of highly qualified and experienced clinician educators. It is part of our mission to ensure that students develop the competencies, skills and experience to provide safe and effective speech pathology services to the community on graduation.
