Misericordia has been approved by Pennsylvania to be an Educational Improvement Organization.

The Speech-Language and Hearing Center at Misericordia University provides free services to children in grades K-3 with a wide range of communication disorders. This EITC-eligible gift to Misericordia ensures these young children will receive the assessment and treatment they need at the state-of-the-art center to prevent them from falling behind in the classroom.
