Mission Statement

Delaware Speech and Hearing Center believes in the primacy of human communication. Because we care about community, we offer the highest quality assessment, treatment and instruction in speech, hearing, language, balance and swallowing abilities at a reasonable cost.

Description

In 1959 what is now the Delaware Speech and Hearing Center was founded in a small room at the Delaware City-County Health Department on North Sandusky Street to provide basic services to Delaware County children. Despite difficulties with funding and promotion, programs were added and the number of clients grew steadily.

In 1961 operations were moved to 27 W. Central Ave, the Center's first permanent home. Greater space allowed for expanded programs as the Center, with increased funding, added equipment and staff.

For the past 24 years, Guy Naples, Executive Director, aided by an active Board of Directors and many generous donations, has ably shepherded the Delaware Speech and Hearing Center through its growth and changes. In early 2006 the Center moved to its current home, a much larger building purchased at 494 West Central Avenue. This recent expansion allows the Center to better serve Delaware, one of the fastest growing communities in the state of Ohio.
