Culturally and Linguistically Relevant Services
A focus of our training program is to prepare students in speech-language pathology to address the needs of clients/patients who are bilingual and/or from culturally diverse backgrounds. Our clinic provides services to bilingual clients of all ages in both group and individual treatment settings. We have a growing support group, conducted in Spanish and English, for individuals who have difficulty communicating following a stroke.

Payment and Fees
All services are provided according to the highest current professional standards. Modest fees are charged, with especially low rates for current UNM affiliates (faculty, staff, students). The Center provides services for adults with developmental disabilities through the Medicaid DD Waiver program. Several methods of payment are available for clients' convenience.
UNMSLHC does not currently accept medical insurance. Services are offered at a reduced cost that is often comparable to an insurance copayment.
We welcome donations to help cover services for individuals who cannot otherwise afford them.
