CINCINNATI, OH - The Hearing Speech and Deaf Center of Greater Cincinnati is proud to announce receiving a grant in the amount of $25,000 from the Jack J. Smith, Jr. Charitable Trust in support of the Community Screening and Outreach Program. These funds allow provision of screening, evaluations and treatment that nurture the child’s ability to acquire language, reading and writing skills. This program will also equip children from disadvantaged and at-risk populations with speech and language difficulties to obtain the fundamental tools for pre-literacy. Children who live in poverty are more likely to begin kindergarten without the skills they need to learn to read and write.

The Hearing Speech & Deaf Center strengthens our community by supporting individuals and families to overcome obstacles to communication. We believe that communication is the foundation of all human interactions. We provide a barrier-free, inclusive and nurturing environment for anyone seeking to overcome obstacles regarding speech, hearing or deafness.
