Improving Quality of Life through Communication
Blue Ridge Speech and Hearing Center is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that has been providing services since 1964 to residents of Loudoun and Fairfax Counties, and surrounding communities. In fulfilling our mission of helping people communicate, we provide hearing testing, hearing aid sales and service, assistive listening device sales and service, auditory processing evaluations, tinnitus evaluations, speech evaluations, speech therapy, computer-based learning enhancement programs and most recently occupational therapy. The Center has the only pediatric hearing aid loaner bank to provide 100% digital, state-of-the-art technology hearing aids for children who either have hearing aids in need of repair or who are awaiting new hearing aids. This enables hearing-impaired children to receive the benefit of hearing aids as quickly as possible, regardless of the family's financial situation. We also raise funds to provide hearing aids and services at little or no cost to those who are otherwise unable to afford them. The mission of Blue Ridge Speech and Hearing Center is to improve the quality of life by helping people of all ages reach their fullest communication potential. The Center enriches lives and enriches communities. With a new location, The Center is expanding services to ensure that the mission is always fulfilled with affordable, comprehensive professional speech-language, audiology/hearing and occupational services for all who require these services.
