Treatment for Hearing Loss & Speech Disorders in New Jersey

Hearing loss and speech disorders are common medical conditions in the United States. In cases of severe hearing loss, there is a high likelihood that the patient will develop a speech disorder as well. Realizing that you or your child are having trouble hearing can be alarming at first, but there is no need to panic. 95% of all hearing disorders can be improved with treatment and speech disorders can often be managed or eliminated completely with speech therapy. We offer comprehensive hearing and speech services for patients of all ages from a skilled team of audiologists and speech-language pathologists.

Symptoms of Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can occur so gradually that many people do not realize they have a hearing problem until someone points it out to them. We offer comprehensive screening for hearing disorders so that we can identify the cause of your condition and start treatment as quickly as possible.

Some common signs of hearing loss may include:

  • Delayed responses to simple questions
  • Difficulty distinguishing between words that sound alike
  • Sitting closely to the TV or turning the volume up louder than usual
  • Consistently asking others to repeat what they just said
  • Ringing or buzzing sounds in the ears

Treatment for hearing disorders may include surgery, medication, or rehabilitation. Cochlear implants and other assisted listening devices are popular and powerful tools in the fight against hearing loss. Unless the patient is completely deaf, there is a strong chance that they will be able to hear without difficulty with treatment.

Speech Therapy

Not being able to clearly communicate with those around you can be very frustrating. Most speech disorders manifest early in a child’s life and can be treated with speech therapy. Our speech-language pathologists are board certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and can assist patients suffering from speech disorders, difficulty swallowing and other oral conditions.

You may require the services of a speech-language pathologist if you have suffered from/are currently dealing with:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders/PDD
  • Apraxia
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Central Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Cochlear Implants/Hearing Impairment
  • CVA (Stroke)
  • Cleft Lip/Palate
  • Delayed Speech-Language Development
  • Down Syndrome
  • Head and Neck Cancer
  • Progressive Neurological Disease (i.e., Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis)
  • Stuttering
  • TBI(Traumatic Brain Injury)
  • Vocal Cord Nodules/Polyps/Paralyzed Vocal Cords

Do not underestimate the negative effects of hearing and speech disorders, especially when they affect children. Difficulty hearing or speaking can make it harder for children to concentrate in school, develop social skills, or speak out when they are feeling upset or sick.
