President’s Column

Dear friends,

Speech, language, and hearing problems affect one of every ten people, and the impact is profound at any age. Columbus Speech and Hearing offers help – and hope.

For nearly a century, our mission has remained the same: to unlock potential for those with communication challenges throughout all stages of life. Today our vision is as focused as ever, as we continue to be Central Ohio’s recognized leader in the delivery of audiology services, speech-language therapy, and community ASL classes.

It is our most singular goal to help each person we serve with personalized caring attention, and through this care, help each person achieve their full potential.

We look forward to working with you!
