July 20, 2020

In response to the current novel coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak and the risk it poses to our community and especially our most vulnerable populations, the UW Speech & Hearing Clinic will be closed until further notice. All in-clinic speech, language, and audiology appointments will be postponed until further notice. 

  • Our audiologists will continue to provide essential hearing aid troubleshooting and repair services. Please call 206-543-5440 to schedule a time for a no-contact curbside drop off your hearing aid. 
  • Telepractice options: We offer telepractice sessions for our clients. Please go to the Telepractice Options page for more details.
  • Except for specific scheduled appointment times, the Clinic is closed to the public and clinic staff are working from home. 

​We believe this to be the best action to take at this time based on information provided to us by the University of Washington administration, as well as guidelines from county, state, and national health officials. Please feel free to call at 206-543-5440 or email us at shclinic@uw.edu if you have any questions or concerns about this closure. This message will be updated as new information is made available to us.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes, but it is a necessary step towards limiting the spread of the coronavirus.
