The Eckelmann-Taylor Speech and Hearing Clinic is a division of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). The Clinic is located in Fairchild Hall/Rachel Cooper Building. We provide hearing healthcare and speech and language services to students, faculty/staff, and residents of Bloomington-Normal and the surrounding communities.

Additionally, services provided in our Clinic are covered by ISU student health benefits (if you are covered by Student Insurance) for both audiology and speech services. We are able to work with third-party insurances.
