FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) – In the U.S., 48 million individuals have reported some degree of hearing loss, including children and adults. Now through November 14, campus and local community members can get their hearing evaluated for free through Fresno State’s Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic. Assessments are held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the on-campus Audiology Clinic. The two-hour evaluations test for hearing loss, including the type and severity of the loss.

Appointments must be made in advance by completing a case history form, available online. Upon approval, an appointment may be scheduled based on availability. Appointments are made on a first-come, first-served basis as the number of evaluations are limited during the semester.

Clients must be at least three years old and be able to follow basic commands. The comprehensive evaluations provide advanced clinical training and research opportunities for speech-language pathology students, who are supervised by licensed and nationally certified audiologists.
