Early Speech and Language at HASA - Hearing and Speech Agency

Early Speech and Language at HASA

In 1960, the organization’s first speech therapy program was inaugurated. The new speech program through the Baltimore Hearing Society was the first of its kind in the community to address those who were hard of hearing and those with speech difficulties. With this move, the Society established itself as a leading service provider in the community. What began as a service provided primarily to children through Gateway School expanded to adults with speech-language difficulties caused by a variety of issues, including aphasia, stuttering, and more. The expansion of the Society’s role in communication care is partially what prompted its rebranding to The Hearing and Speech Agency (HASA).

Today, HASA's speech and language program serve more than 2,000 children and adults each year.
