Columbus Speech & Hearing is coming to our center Thursday, September 29, 2016. The cost is $10.00 for a speech screening and $10.00 for a hearing screening. The speech screening will offer 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) to identify concerns. The hearing screening is to quickly identify the presence of a hearing impairment and/or middle ear problem.
Children are taken from their classrooms to the church library (by staff) and meet with Pam France in groups of 3-4 to complete one or both screenings. A written summary of the screening is provided, however I encourage parents to attend the screening if you have specific concerns to talk directly with Pam about the results. This a great opportunity for a reasonable cost, to have these screenings performed by a licensed speech-language pathologist.
The center offers this opportunity on site as part of our commitment to quality care. The cost of $10.00 per screening is the fee of Columbus Speech and Hearing. If cost is a deterrent or hindrance to obtaining a screening, please see me to discuss further.

Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
