Speech & Hearing Clinic

At Mercy we believe that learning happens by doing and have designed our programs to provide hands-on experience while students are still in school. The Speech and Hearing Clinic helps our students gain the practical real-world knowledge they will need to stand out from the crowd.

Our Speech and Hearing Center is located on our Dobbs Ferry Campus and has been providing services to the Mercy community and area residents for over 30 years.

The center provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluations and individualized therapy programs for people evaluations and individualized therapy programs for people of all ages with intellectual disabilities, speech, language, swallowing or hearing disorders.
