The Gebbie Clinic was established in 1972 through the generous contributions of three organizations: The Gebbie Foundation of Jamestown, NY, the Association for the Aid of Crippled Children, and Syracuse University. All three organizations had a great interest in furthering the studies related to communication disorders. The Gebbie Clinic is the training site for graduate students enrolled in the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology programs at Syracuse University.
Since the dedication in 1972, the Gebbie Clinic has seen numerous updates as the needs of our students and clients grew over the decades.The Gebbie Clinic was orignally in the Hoople building on main campus. In July of 2013, Gebbie Clinic celebrated its 40th Anniversary with the official grand opening of the new Gebbie Clinic facilities on Skytop Road, Syracuse University’s south campus. The current Gebbie Clinic is a state-of-the-art educational, clinical and research facility. It includes 7 number of speech therapy rooms, two large group therapy rooms, two sound booths for hearing testing, a hearing aid fitting room that can simulate everyday listening environments, and an Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) and vestibular testing room.
The Gebbie Clinic offers personal, individualized service, and support to adults, children, and families in need of diagnostic and treatment for a wide variety of speech-language and hearing difficulties. Services are provided by our highly skilled students, who are earning advanced degrees in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, under the direct supervision of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologist licensed by the New York State Department of Education and certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders at Syracuse University is accredited by the Council of Academic Accreditation (CAA) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
The Department of CSD does not offer, study, or affiliate itself with Facilitated Communication (FC) or Supported Typing (ST). For more information about FC and ST, refer to http://www.asha.org/policy/TR1994-00139.htm and http://valid.org.au/documents/isaac_fc_position_statement.pdf.
I continued to take my son to the Gebbie clinic for therapy. He received services for nine months and is now a successful and clear-spoken first grader."
