The Edgar R. Garrett Speech and Hearing Center has provided services to Las Cruces and the surrounding area for over 40 years. In addition to the services provided in our on-campus clinic, students and faculty regularly provide hearing, speech, and language screenings for the Las Cruces Public Schools, Gadsden Public Schools, Dona Ana County Head Start, NMSU Myrna’s Children’s Village, local day cares, and Las Cruces Region Special Olympians.
The Center charges minimal fees to clients and relies largely on donations to support the provision of clinical services as well as to purchase equipment, assessment and therapy materials. The Las Cruces Sertoma Club, part of an international civic organization that supports the field of communication disorders, recently donated $25,000 to the clinic for infant hearing testing and audiology equipment. In addition, Sertoma has provided supplementary funding for clinical supervision of students.
Located on the University’s main campus in the Speech building, near the intersection of Jordan and University Avenues, the Edgar R. Garrett Speech and Hearing Center provides year-round services by appointment. Services are offered in English and Spanish.
Students, faculty, staff, and persons served in the program’s clinic are treated in a nondiscriminatory manner – that is, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, participation restriction, age, sexual orientation, or status as a parent. The institution and program comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and executive orders pertaining thereto.
