The University Center for Language and Literacy (UCLL) offers speech-language evaluations and therapy services for clients across the lifespan, as well as reading intervention services for school-aged children. The Center, founded over 80 years ago, was one of the first communication disorders programs in the United States. UCLL’s Language and Literacy Services (LLS) programs specialize in the development of oral language skills for communication, literacy acquisition, and social skills development. The Center continues to provide the well-known Preschool and Communications Therapy program (PACT), where preschoolers receive intensive group and individual therapy. UCLL offers comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for reading-based learning disorders and the Reading Program provides targeted reading assessments and interventions for those with reading disabilities. In addition to its LLS programs, the Center’s highly regarded University of Michigan Aphasia Program (UMAP) attracts participants from around the country and world who wish to improve their communication skills following a stroke or head injury. UMAP was the first and continues to be one of the leading providers of intensive speech-language therapy for adults with aphasia. In association with UMAP, the University of Michigan Aphasia Community (UMAC), is a communication group offered throughout the year to those in the community with aphasia. The Center also offers workshops entitled Speaking American English: A Communications Skills Workshop for university students and adults in the community.
