Columbus Speech & Hearing was established in 1923 as the League for the Hard of Hearing. The League focused on assisting hard-of-hearing individuals in the Columbus community to improve their ability to communicate. Over time, the League experienced name and location changes; however, the desire to help individuals in the central Ohio area remained.
Focusing on the needs of the community, the League evolved into the programs that exist at Columbus Speech & Hearing today, which include audiology & hearing aid services, speech-language therapy, and community ASL classes.
For 100 years, Columbus Speech & Hearing has continued to offer exceptional service to clients across Ohio. By remaining focused on its mission to help all people improve communication, the center raises awareness of speech and hearing challenges throughout the Columbus community and surrounding areas.
