Graduate Externship


The University of Houston's Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders boasts an extraordinary externship program that may be the finest of its kind in a single metropolitan area. Our program offers a student extern a choice from among OVER FIFTY different sites, each of which is staffed by one or more well-qualified professionals who holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence as awarded by ASHA.

The sites are grouped as follows:

  • Facilities, other than public schools, where school-age children are served such as private practices, outpatient clinics, and private schools.
  • Facilities that specialize in service delivery to children in the birth to age-3 range. These are often referred to as sites that specialize in "early childhood intervention."
  • Public school settings that involve fifteen different districts in the greater Houston area.
  • Facilities that specialize in either the acute, long-term care or rehabilitative care of adult patients.
