Jacksonville Speech & Hearing COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update

Effective immediately, the Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center will be providing patient care exclusively through telehealth (online/virtual therapies and services). The clinic is suspending all in-person patient visits at 1010 N. Davis Street until further notice. We have made this decision in the best interests of our patients and staff, and in compliance with Governor Ron DeSantis’ Executive Order #2020-72.

We will continue to provide patient care through our telehealth program as a safe alternative that is in compliance with the Governor’s orders. Telehealth will enable us to keep our patients’ health and safety at the forefront of our protocols, while ensuring that they are still able to receive quality care. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue serving our patients in their homes through these technological advancements.

Patients with questions regarding our telehealth program or appointment scheduling may contact us at (904) 355-3403 or clinic@shcjax.org.

We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this time of change. We will continue to provide service updates via email, our website, and social media platforms.

Thank you for your ongoing support. We wish you and your loved ones continued safety, health, and happiness.

JSHC #GivingTuesday

Help Support JSHC This #GivingTuesday (December 3)!

A Global Day of Giving

#GivingTuesday #PinDownCommunication

This year on Tuesday, December 3, the Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center will be participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Our goal is to raise $17,500—funds that will provide 500 members of our community in-need with free speech and hearing screenings

These screenings will provide the basis for individuals with speech, language, and hearing needs to overcome the communication difficulties that hinder their ability to thrive socially, academically, and professionally. With your support, we can help people speak, we can help people hear, and, most importantly, we can help people be heard. 

For the past 70 years, we have provided life-changing services that enable children with communication disorders to start kindergarten on level with their peers, adults who have lost their job due to hearing loss to obtain the hearing aids necessary for them to return to the workforce, and veterans overcome service-related hearing challenges as they transition into civilian life.

In honor of our 70th Anniversary, this #GivingTuesday will feature special edition 70th anniversary button pins designed by children in our community. For every $70 that you donate to our #GivingTuesday efforts, you will receive a complimentary button pin that you can proudly wear to demonstrate your commitment to helping us #PinDownCommunication on the First Coast.  

Through your gift, you will truly be making a difference in our patients’ lives and in our community. You can contribute to our cause by donating via our website’s “Donate” button below, our official #GivingTuesday Facebook fundraiser, cash, or checks made out to the “Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center.” Thank you in advance for your generosity! 

For any #GivingTuesday-related questions, please contact Emily Wasek at EWasek@shcjax.org or (904) 717-6933.

 

Please take a moment to share this with your friends, family and connections.

You’ll be providing a favor to your connections by letting them know about a life-changing opportunity. You’ll be providing a favor to us by helping us get more visibility for our cause. But most importantly, you’ll be providing a favor to Northeast Florida’s community by helping our children gain the gift of communication.

Thank you!

Back to School Hearing

Prepping for back-to-school? Don’t forget hearing!

Can you hear the back-to-school bell? 

It’s August, and that means pretty soon the kids will be saying goodbye to the summer vacation and saying hello to homework, books, and new schedules. We all want our kids to do well in school, but sometimes they struggle.

What if your child wasn’t able to hear as well as the other children? Did you know that hearing issues share many of the same symptoms as ADD (attention deficit disorder) and ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder)? Read more
