Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center (CHSC) has a long and remarkable history
of helping individuals with communication challenges
become independent members of the Greater Cleveland Community. Founded in 1921,
we began with the simple mission of providing lipreading classes for adults who
are deaf or hard of hearing.
We are the nation's oldest hearing and speech center and Northeast Ohio's
only nonprofit organization dedicated solely to serving those with special communication
needs. CHSC consistently serves nearly 8,000 children and adults each year
and provides the following programs and services: Hearing,
Community Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and Speech-Language and Learning. The Center also
oversees the management of the Regional Infant Hearing Program (RIHP), which services 14
counties in Northeast Ohio.
A staff of more than 50 professionals — audiologists, sign language interpreters,
speech-language pathologists, outreach specialists and administrative staff — are
employed at the Center's headquarters in University Circle and three branch offices in South Euclid, Broadview Heights and Lorain.
We also have a 65+ year affiliation with Case Western Reserve University's Department
of Psychological Sciences.
