There are millions of people who do not communicate as well as they would like. Our staff at Birmingham Speech and Hearing is qualified and eager to help you improve your communication skills, whether you need speech-language or hearing services.
Difficulty with hearing loss can be a debilitating problem for both children and adults. Good hearing is essential for young and old alike. Compromised hearing can negatively affect the development of social skills, cognition, balance and safety. Some of the more common causes of hearing loss include exposure to noise in the work environment or recreation, infectious disease, physical trauma, ototoxic drugs or chemicals, birth defects and developmental syndromes. The aging process is a significant factor, along with genetic susceptibility.
As with hearing problems, speech and language problems can affect people at any age. When babies and young children do not acquire age-appropriate communication skills, they may be at risk for further problems. While some children “outgrow” speech and language difficulties, others may need professional help to reach their potential. Speech-language pathologists have the knowledge to evaluate and treat people of all ages who have communication delays and disorders affecting speech sounds, swallowing, voice, fluency (stuttering is disrupted fluency), receptive language (understanding what people say), and expressive language.
