About Savannah Speech and Hearing Center

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide access to comprehensive speech, hearing, language and other therapeutic services that empower and transform lives.


Since 1954, the legacy of Savannah Speech & Hearing Center has been one of hard work, innovative solutions, and an unwavering commitment to meeting the speech, language, and hearing needs of children and adults throughout the community. The Center leads the way as a direct service provider, information resource center, and advocate for people of all ages. Savannah Speech & Hearing Center is dedicated to helping children and adults fulfill their potential and explore every opportunity to enjoy a happy and rewarding future.

Our speech-language pathologists and audiologists are certified by the American-Speech-Language-Hearing-Association (ASHA) and are licensed by the Georgia State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.

The Savannah Speech and Hearing Center is pleased to offer services in Effingham County. Comprehensive audiology services are now available at the United Way Service Center in Rincon.
