Communication skills are a vital part of life. Without the use of our hearing or the ability to speak we forfeit the most critical elements of our lives. The inability to speak and hear not only profoundly impacts the person as an individual, but all those around him.
Our team of highly skilled Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists are here to guide you in the journey to speak and hear whether it be to regain those skills, enhance various communicative interactions, or learn them for the very first time.
At HearSay we care about your speech and hearing, and the quality of your life.
In speech and language therapy, a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) or a Communicative Disorders Assistant (CDA) works with an infant, child, or an adult to overcome any speech and / or language difficulty they may have.
Audiology is the study of hearing and hearing-related disorders. An Audiologist is a hearing health care professional who works to prevent, identify and assess hearing loss in individuals.
Speech sound problems occur when the speech organs cannot move in the manner required to create specific sounds. This can be caused by having difficulty learning to physically move the tongue, lips, jaw and other speech organs in a manner to make the specific sounds.
We take pride in treating each client individually, as no two clients have the same lifestyle, nor want the same things. Whether you are socially active, still in the work force, or would like to hear the minister better during a religious service, we can give you a variety of options on ways to improve your hearing.
Auditory Processing is the ability to take sound through the ear and having it travel to the language area of the brain to be interpreted. A breakdown in this process is called an auditory processing disorder or “delay.” This deficit is present despite having normal hearing.
We offer a wide range of hearing tests to meet all your hearing needs. These tests can help diagnose many problems related to speech as well as your ability to hear in general or even certain situations.
