Imagine your world without the ability to talk. Or, unable to hear “I love you” from a child or parent? The simple act of talking, hearing and using language to communicate with the world, so basic to our social life, is something most of us take for granted yet for some, is debilitating.

Speech, language, and hearing problems affect 1 out of every 10 people, according to Dr. Dawn Gleason, President and CEO of Columbus Speech and Hearing Center (CSHC). 

CSHC has been delivering vital communication and vocational services in Columbus and throughout Ohio, for more than 80 years. Beyond services, the CSHC is building brighter futures for those with speech, language, and communication problems.

"We serve about 10,000 people per year in central Ohio," reports Susan Slater, CSHC’s Public Relations Coordinator. Slater also said CSHC’s mission is "to help all people improve communication and vocational independence for life."

From a parent’s perspective, the quality service, programs, and professionalism of CSHC’s staff are outstanding.

And their vision is crystal clear: to be the recognized leader for information, support, evaluation and treatment resulting in enhanced communication, life skills, and vocational independence for all people.

CSHC prides themselves on upholding values of excellence, respect, integrity, teamwork and compassion. They demonstrate these values through a variety of services:

Audiology & Hearing Aid Services
Hearing loss makes it difficult for people to communicate in their daily lives, at home and at work. Personalized services are offered, in addition to the latest in hearing aid technology to best meet individual communication and hearing needs. 

Comprehensive Program for the Deaf
The Comprehensive Program for the Deaf (CPD) has provided statewide vocational services to adults who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind or who have other disabilities for nearly 40 years. 

Speech-Language and Occupational Therapy
Licensed, certified Speech-Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists know that early diagnosis and treatment is the key to eliminating future challenges in social settings, school and work. 

In addition, specific programs, such as “It Takes Two to Talk” are offered through CSHC. Be sure to check out this illuminating program.
