Through our popular Chatterbox program, parents have an opportunity to talk with a speech-language pathologist at a play café, library storytime, or local rec center. Within this informal environment, parents can get information on developmental milestones and general strategies for building communication skills.

We provide on-site speech and/or hearing screenings to more than 35 private schools, preschools and childcare centers each year.
A speech screening will provide a brief survey of communication skills (speech sounds, what your child understands, how he/she uses words to communicate, flow and rate of speech and vocal quality) in order to identify children who may have or be at risk for problems with any of these areas.
A hearing screening will involve a quick test to quickly identify the presence of a hearing impairment and/or middle ear problem using pure tone audiometry and tympanometry.
Referrals and recommendations are made following all screenings.
Please call Pam France at 614-261-5492 to schedule a screening event at your preschool, daycare, or other community location.
