Partnering with the community

For the last two years, the Clinical Center has partnered with Jackson County to waive fees for psychological assessments for those who qualify. Additionally, the center often works with DCFS on certain cases, along with receiving assessment and counseling cases by court order.

We commemorate these partnerships and valuable support, while welcoming community members to learn more about the many services available to them.

The Clinical Center at Southern Illinois University Carbondale has been part of the Southern Illinois Community since 1958. The Clinical Center serves as a training and research site for various campus departments that train professionals for work in psychological, educational and Speech & Language services. In that training and research capacity, we provide a range of services designed to improve the lives of the individuals we serve. The Clinical Center provides services to children, adolescents, and adults in the community. Some are associated with SIUC, but many are not.


  • Psychological assessments including learning disability and attention deficit disorder
  • Speech and language assessments (e.g., articulation, phonological development, voice, stuttering, receptive and expressive language, auditory processing, aphasia, cognitive-linguistic, oral-motor, swallowing)
  • Intakes are conducted for all new clients seeking psychological services

Of note, the Clinical Center does NOT provide disability, custody or court assessments.

Counseling/Treatment Interventions

  • Speech & Language treatment (e.g., language, speech, sound production, stuttering, speech reading, aphasia rehabilitation, voice and aural rehabilitation)
  • Individual and group counseling (including child, adolescent and adult) - see our specialities here
  • Family and couples counseling
  • Parent training

Faculty Practice Plan

If an individual prefers to work with a licensed faculty supervisor, some supervisors participate in our faculty practice plan. Please review faculty profiles and areas of expertise to learn more. The rates for service are different for seeing licensed faculty clinicians. It is important for you to know that we do not bill insurance for these services.  For more information about our Faculty Clinicians and their services, Click Here.
