The Language-Literacy Center (LLC) was initially funded through a grant from University of the Pacific to meet the clinical training needs of Pacific speech-language pathology students and the language-literacy needs of area youth. The LLC is designed to provide our students with opportunities to learn best practices in working with youth who have language-literacy disorders and to conduct research in this area. We are currently seeking referrals of individuals who meet the following criteria as potential candidates for the LLC:

  • Children/adolescents in grades 1-12 
  • Mild-moderate language disorder
  • At least low average cognitive ability 
  • Struggle with literacy (reading and/or writing)
  • Ability to attend weekly, one-hour afternoon sessions

Assessment and treatment sessions will be provided free of charge in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at University of the Pacific, 757 Brookside Road, Stockton, CA.
