Communication Disorders & Deaf Education

College of Education and Allied Health ProfessionsThe ability to communicate is our most precious human characteristic. When a person cannot communicate, isolation from friends, family and society often occurs.

Nearly 10 million Americans have a speech, language and/or hearing disorder. Speech-language pathologists and deaf educators provide services to enhance the lives of those with communication disorders.

All faculty members in Fontbonne University's Communication Disorders and Deaf Education department have the academic preparation and the practical experience to prepare teachers of the deaf or speech-language pathologists. Deaf education faculty members have teacher certification and speech-language pathology faculty members are licensed by the state of Missouri and certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

The department of communication disorders and deaf education offers a Deaf Education (BA) degree and a Speech-Language Pathology (BS) degree.
