The Speech Therapy Unit (STU) was set up by the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies in 2012 to create a platform for clinical practice, teaching, and research through the delivering clinical services to the general public. In addition to facilitating research collaboration between linguists, cognitive neuroscientists and speech therapists, the STU accommodates the supervised clinical hours that are required for the professional training of speech therapy students in our Master of Speech Therapy programme. It also provides training to students from various humanities, social sciences and health disciplines, as well as practicing professionals in the community.
STU is operated by a group of qualified and experienced speech therapists. It offers assessment and treatment services to children and adults who suffer from a wide variety of communication and swallowing disorders in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
