Community And Clinical Services Offered By USU Available Online

A press release from Utah State University dated April 15, 2020 stated:

LOGAN, Utah – The Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services has made
rapid adjustments to the way they provide services to the community. The CEHS COVID-19
resource page includes student resources and also remote work resources specific to the college.

Sorenson Center: 
The Sorenson Center now has all services available via telehealth, although a few clients still
receive in-person services with strict safety and health protocols in place. The center is
committed to remaining open for essential services (such as repairing or replacing hearing aids).
They have largely transitioned to telehealth, while remaining flexible in order to address client
needs in person when necessary.
Behavior Support Services
Speech and Language
Housing & Financial Counseling
Pediatric Feeding & Swallowing Services

Marriage and Family Therapy:  
The Marriage and Family Therapy division is providing seamless services, mainly through the
use of telehealth, to families and individuals across the region. This is particularly important as
large scale stressors can increase divorce, spouse and child abuse, and suicide rates.

Audiology and Speech-Language:  
The Audiology and speech-language divisions, as well as the Sound Beginnings program, are
facilitating remote service delivery. These innovative efforts are helping clients and their
families, including children who are deaf or hard of hearing, to continue to receive services.

Pediatric Audiology
Cochlear Implants

Mental Health:  
The ACT Guide, an online, self-guided mental health app, is available to USU students for
free: sign up here.

The Up to 3 Early Intervention Program, which promotes the development of children under the
age of 3 who have any type of disability or developmental delay, has transitioned all early
intervention services to virtual visits, and the Developmental Skills Laboratory has moved from
on-site to in-home services for their clients.

The Autism Support Services: Education, Research, and Training(ASSERT) program has
created many interactive activities for parents and children to complete together online, including
new videos of “circle time” lessons. Case managers meet with families via teleconference
multiple times per week to support them as they work through behavioral challenges caused by
recent disruptions to routine.

Edith Bowen Laboratory School:  
Edith Bowen Laboratory School teachers have made a complete transition to teaching online
using Canvas and Google Classroom. They have many online resources for students, teachers,
and parents.

Aggies Elevated:  
Aggies Elevated, which offers a two-year certificate for young adults with intellectual
disabilities, has both mentors and students who are now proficient at using Zoom, as they share
screens to help with homework via remote desktop technology.

Tribal and Rural Opioid Initiative:  
The Tribal and Rural Opioid Initiative has produced a recent podcast episode which debunks
myths about COVID-19.

The GEAR UP program is continuing essential services through online tutoring,virtual field
trips, and individual calls to cohort students. They have also assembled a list of free educational
resources to help students learn from home.

WebAIM has made registration free for its Online Document Accessibility Course for all faculty
and staff through June 2020, so educators and employees can share accessible digital resources
with students and each other.
