The Center's services expanded over the years to include diagnostic testing and the provision of hearing aids. In 1965, the agency added services to individuals with speech disorders. In 1969, the Center developed the School Screening Program to provide hearing and vision tests for area students. Today, the Center is an established and unique facility for Audiology and Speech Pathology, serving over 14,000 individuals annually.
