Support JSHC This #GivingTuesday (December 1)!
On Tuesday, December 1, the Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center will participate in #GivingTuesday2020, a global day dedicated to giving. This year, our goal is to raise $15,000—funds that will enable us to provide 428 people in our community with speech and hearing screenings. These screenings will provide the basis for individuals with speech, language, and hearing needs to receive the essential care that they require in order to effectively communicate.
And, thanks to generous match dollars from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, you have the opportunity to DOUBLE your impact when you donate here!
Additionally, if 200 donors specifically give on #GivingTuesday (Tuesday, December 1st), we’ll receive $25,000 in bonus funds for our patients! Every gift will help us reach this goal, so please consider the fact that your gift could be the one that provides our patients with $25,000 more worth of care! Read more

Hearing and Speech Issues are Common in Children
Hearing and speech issues are quite common in children, and can manifest in a number of ways. Understandably, this ambiguity can be concerning for parents, especially with all of the unknowns.
But it’s important to remember that these issues are usually manageable and treatable, especially with early intervention. That’s why it’s vital for the parents of young children to be well-informed on hearing and speech issues so they know all of their options.
After all, language is the basis of communication. Speech and language skills are essential to many areas in a child’s life, from interpersonal relationships to academic success. The ability to communicate, both with peers and adults, is essential for a child’s success. Read more
JSHC Receives IBCCES Telepractice Certification!
We are proud to announce that the Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center (JSHC) is the first speech and hearing center in Florida to certify its staff in teletherapy through the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES).
To earn Telepractice Certification, staff underwent comprehensive training on how to create a conducive teletherapy environment, protect patients’ online privacy, troubleshoot technological issues, and remotely collaborate with patients and their families.
By receiving virtual care from a Board Certified Telepractice Specialist, patients are able to receive the same quality care that they would otherwise receive in-office from the comfort of their homes. Both speech and audiology care are available through our telepractice program.
This certification also makes our team uniquely qualified to provide online care to patients with special needs that is in-compliance with the IDEA, Section 504, and the ADA. Such qualifications are essential when remotely serving students in the public school system who rely upon regular speech therapy sessions as part of their Individualized Education Plans (IEPs).
