#WHO World Hearing Day: speech therapist sounds off! 

Logan Carter MS CCC-SLP, speech therapist at the Midtown office in Charlotte, is sounding off about World Hearing Day, March 3!

Hearing is vital to learning speech sounds, verbal language and maintaining cognitive function. It is important to protect you ears against loud sounds, treat ear infections and identify hearing loss early through regular screening. Strategies such as sign language, captioning and hearing devices can help reduce the effects of hearing loss.

The speech therapy team at Child and Family Development provides hearing screenings as a part of our speech and language evaluation process.  Consult with our speech therapists to learn more about hearing and development of expressive and receptive communication skills.
