Purdue University’s Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences recently moved to new quarters, a $38 million building in Lafayette, Indiana, it will share with the Indiana University School of Medicine–Lafayette, School of Nursing, and three departments of the College of Health and Human Sciences.
The new building, Lyles-Porter Hall, is named in honor of a $10 million contribution to its construction from Marybeth Lyles-Porter Seay, a retired speech-language pathologist who earned her bachelor’s degree in speech-language pathology at Purdue in 1959. Seay, who also earned a master’s degree in audiology from California State University–Long Beach, credits her successful 20-year career to her start at Purdue.
The building features more than 20 speech, language and hearing research labs; 30 sound booths for research and patient visits; new research equipment, including advanced methods for measuring brain activity and mapping children’s movements and motor control in 3-D; and the M.D. Steer Audiology and Speech-Language Clinics.
The Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences has 24 tenure-track and research faculty and 14 clinical faculty members. Its audiology clinic serves about 1,800 patients of all ages every year, and is one of Indiana’s primary diagnostic centers for infant hearing, seeing about 150 babies a year. The speech-language clinic sees almost 1,700 clients of all ages per year.
