About Us

For the past 63 years, the Jacksonville Speech & Hearing Center has provided professional, compassionate audiology and speech/language services to literally thousands of children and adults in our community regardless of their ability to pay. Today, the Center continues to provide these services to approximately 4,000 children, adults and seniors annually, providing them with the necessary communication tools to live fuller and more productive lives.

The Speech & Hearing Center was founded in 1949 as one of the first speech and hearing centers to serve children in Northeast Florida.

In 1948, there were no services in the Jacksonville area for children with hearing or speech problems, although hearing, speaking and understanding the spoken language are essential components to a child’s growth and development. The Junior League of Jacksonville recognized the need for these important services and helped to found what would later be known as the Jacksonville Speech and Hearing Center.

The Center is supported by United Way of Northeast Florida, the City of Jacksonville, Jessie Ball duPont Fund, and public and private donations.
