People connect through communication. When the ability to speak or process language doesn’t exist or is lost, the effects can be profound. In children, speech and language disorders cause problems at school by impacting the child’s ability to learn. Poor self-esteem and behavior problems can lead to a lifetime of isolation. As adults, untreated communication disorders make it difficult to retain employment, enjoy gathering with friends and family, as well as contribute to depression and affect your brain processing.
At Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center, we provide services to help individuals of all ages develop better speech and language skills and to educate their loved ones on how to promote speech and language skills in the home. We provide diagnostic evaluations and treatment of speech and language problems including:
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Oral motor speech disorder
- Receptive and expressive language disorder
- Voice disorders
- Articulation/phonological disorders
How Do I know if a Loved One or I has a Speech or Language Disorder?
You don’t. That’s why we’re here. If you suspect or have noticed any of the following signs, come in for a Speech-Language Evaluation:
- Difficulty producing speech sounds correctly
- Trouble producing speech sounds fluently
- Issues with own voice resonance
- Trouble understanding others
- Difficulty sharing thoughts, ideas, or feelings in spoken or written format
The results of the Speech-Language Evaluation will help identify the causes and characteristics of each patient’s communication disorders. Following evaluation, our Speech-Language Pathologists will develop a therapy regimen tailored to each patient’s developmental needs, identifying individualized exercises and goals for success.

My son just started going to speech and I and he is loving it already I am hoping this speech dr will help better than school, he wasn’t getting it on a normal basis.
I have been bring my children here for the past 3 years and I absolutely love it. My kids see Ms Dot and Ms Ciara and they are amazing. My children’s speech has been helped tremendously thanks to them. I love that all of the staff know my children. I don’t even have to give names when we come in because they already know who we are. Everyone is super friendly and they all do their jobs well. I would recommend JSHC to anyone that I know can use the services. Keep up the amazing work.
Everyone is very nice and welcoming. My son loves his therapist Ms. Ciara. She is understanding, loving and caring.
Very clean environment and the staff is wonderful! My son absolutely loves ms Kera and she is very nice, and very professional!! Overall a excellent experience
I've been bringing my daughter her for almost 4 years. She loves her speech therapist and the staff are all wonderful! Very attentive to her needs and they are understanding and flexible when it comes to our schedule. Wouldn't want to go anywhere else!
I've had nothing but great experiences here. Ms. Ciara is the best! She's helped my daughter progress so much with her speech. Would highly recommend.
