College of Allied Health Sciences Expands Services Into the Community

Published March 2004

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the UC College of Allied Health Sciences has established a new hearing, speech and language clinic within the health technologies program at Woodward Career Technical High School in Roselawn.

“The new clinic at Woodward will enhance clinical and research experiences for our students, as well as allow us to provide clinical services in a location outside of Clifton, participating in the education of students in the Cincinnati Public Schools,” said Nancy Creaghead, PhD, chair of the UC Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

The clinic currently provides diagnostic hearing evaluations, consultations and treatment, including hearing aid dispensing. Services will expand to include a variety of speech, language and voice diagnostic evaluations and therapy for children and adults. Placement of the new clinic within the Woodward School allows the program, along with entire UC College of Allied Health Sciences, to interface with the school’s Career Technical Program to enhance their students’ employment readiness through coordinated educational opportunities.

“This unique outreach activity provides exemplary learning opportunities for students while adding richness to professional practice and community service,” said Elizabeth King, PhD, dean of the UC College of Allied Health Sciences.

Woodward High School, founded in 1831, is recognized as the oldest public high school in the nation. The Career Technical School of Woodward High School is poised to move to new facilities during the 2005-2006 school year, and continue their newly opened advanced technology programs which include health technologies, building technologies and computer-assisted manufacturing.
