Friday, December 21st, 2018

Columbus Speech & Hearing Center (CSHC) is pleased to announce it has received a $25,000 grant from the Ingram-White Castle Foundation of The Columbus Foundation. These funds will support the Speech Therapy Early Intervention program at the Center, which provides individual therapy for children with communication disorders, and group treatment which focuses on social emotional learning and development opportunities for children. Both programs are essential components in ensuring children can successfully participate in academic and social settings.

True to its mission of unlocking potential for individuals with communication and vocational challenges through all stages of life, the Speech Therapy Early Intervention program provides critical speech-language and social support for children with speech delays and other communication disorders. The grant helps CSHC continue to provide these critical services for all children, including those from households who rely on donor and grant support.

“Approximately one in three families who receive speech therapy services from us rely on community support,” said CSHC President & CEO James O. Dye. “This generous grant from the Ingram-White Castle Foundation ensures we can continue to provide those critical services for the children of central Ohio.”
