When admission to speech-language pathology and/or audiology services is not possible, other ways of securing the needed services and assistance are recommended. Some alternatives to admission to the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic are:
- referral to another agency or practice such as the public schools, a community center in the area from which the person lives, or speech-language pathologists and audiologists in private practice;
- referral to another treatment source, such as physicians, and other clinical practitioners (psychologists, developmental specialists, etc.)
We deal with multiple hearing aid vendors so repairs for aids that are or are not purchased from this clinic can be made. Minimal repairs can be done in-house as well as hearing aid checks to diagnose hearing aid malfunction. If your hearing aid requires major repair, we can send it back to the manufacturer.

The Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic at Round Rock is a non-profit organization and clinical services are provided by graduate students in the Department of Communication Disorders under the supervision and guidance of nationally certified and state licensed clinical supervisors.The San Marcos Community Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is no longer a student training facility, but continues to provide the same quality care we're known for.
