Center for Language, Speech, and Hearing Services

In order to promote physical distancing, the Center for Language, Speech and Hearing is currently open for limited services only. For hearing aid repairs and checks, please call 413-545-2565 for an appointment and we will schedule you as soon as possible. These services will occur by appointment only and you will be given specific instructions over the phone when making the appointment.

 

Speech-language pathology services are currently being provided via telepractice when clinically appropriate for the client’s needs. If you are interested in telepractice speech-language pathology services please call 413-545-2565 and leave your name and phone number and we will call you back to gather more information and discuss your needs.

 

For any other audiology or speech-language pathology questions, we will be regularly monitoring voicemail messages. When updates are available, they will be shared on our website and through our patient portal. Thank you for your patience and stay safe and healthy!
