We provide a supportive environment where clients and their families learn to overcome a variety of communication disorders and differences. Since opening in 1953, the Robbins Center has provided evaluation and treatment for children and adults with communication problems as well as support programs for family members and caregivers. The Robbins Center is also the primary clinical training facility associated with the nationally respected Emerson College Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
