May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

Exposure to Talk and Television Impacts Language Development in Children

When parents engage their child in conversations, they are helping their child build a strong foundation of language skills. Frequent conversational interactions offer more opportunity for children to learn and become better communicators.


Hearing Aids for Children
Our goal is to promote communication development in all children with hearing loss. If developing spoken language is the family’s goal, we make speech as audible and accessible as possible.

Hearing Aids for Adults
Our goal is to improve communication using the most current digital hearing aids and assistive listening devices (ALDs). There are many factors to consider in the process of selecting amplification, and the assistance of an experienced audiologist assures you of choosing a hearing device that best suits your needs.

Boys Town National Research Hospital offers a wide range of speech and language services, including assessment, diagnosis and individualized speech-language therapy sessions for infants, children who have normal hearing, hard of hearing or who are deaf.
