The program has a state-of-the art clinic facility that opened in 2013. All students receive both educational and medical external placements after completing 3 semesters of clinic on-site. The local early intervention program is located at our clinic and all students receive interprofessional practice opportunities with this program and in our on-site audiology clinic. Five summer camps are offered focusing on pre-literacy, language, and an outdoor camping experience for students who are deaf and hard of hearing. Interprofessional education is offered through joint class sessions with the Reading and Counseling programs. Interprofessional practice opportunities are available with the clinical audiologist, including aural rehabilitation groups, and the local early intervention (ages 0 - 3) program. The collaboration with early intervention includes eligibility assessment and intervention in the natural environment. Students earn Virginias certification in early intervention
