Robert G. Combs Language Preschool

About the Language Preschool and Toddler Group

The MU Department of Communication Science and Disorders with the generous support of the Scottish Rite opened the Robert G. Combs Language Preschool.  This preschool serves children aged 2 to 5 years with or without speech and language difficulties.  MU Communication Science and Disorders seniors and graduate students are clinicians for this preschool under the direct supervision of certified faculty.  Given the intense speech and language focus of this program, a very low clinician to student ratio is maintained, approximating 1 clinician for every 2-3 students.
