Information about Clinic Services



Biola University's speech-language clinic operates during the fall and spring semesters. We see each client one time a week for a 50-minute session for a total of 12 sessions during the semester. Our sessions are conducted on a one-on-one basis, though at times we do run small groups.

  1. Clinic Cost
    First-time patients will be charged a one-time $100 evaluation fee. If treatment is deemed necessary, the cost of therapy will be an additional $360 for the entire semester (for a total charge of $460). If you are a returning patient, the $100 evaluation fee will be waived and you will only be charged $360 for the semester ($30 for 12 sessions).

  2. Continuation of Services
    Many parents and clients ask about continued services for the following semesters. We currently have a long waiting list of clients. As a general rule we will see clients for four consecutive semesters (fall and spring). If a client continues to need services after this time we will ask you if you would like to be put on our waiting list until we can see you again. As this is a training program we do reserve the right to extend a fifth or even sixth semester to any specific case.
