Dedicated to the community

The Northwestern University Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning hosts healthcare education events that are open to the community. 

Health Educational Programs

Cognitive Fitness programs benefit older adults wishing to learn more about practical strategies to assist with memory, problem solving, and overall cognitive skill as we age.

Community Screenings

Adult Cognitive Screenings

Free community screenings give participants a baseline of their overall cognitive health. Confidential 20-minute cognitive screenings involve answering written and verbal questions that are commonly used by allied health professionals to gauge brain health through memory, speech, and other related indicators. The screening helps identify cognitive dysfunction, which is different from changes due to normal aging. Results are given to the participant to share with medical professionals if desired. Screenings are hosted by senior community groups. Please contact us at 847-491-3165 if you would like to host a screening event or register for an upcoming screening.

Hearing Screenings

Free hearing screenings are held in various locations throughout the year. Call 847-491-3165 if you would like to host a screening event or register for an upcoming screening.

Youth Speech-Language Screenings

Schools and daycares often invite speech-language pathologist teams to assess speech-language development.
