Who knew speech and hearing could be this much fun?! Let us share our love for the field, the science, and the people that we work with each day with our weekly dose of Sound Advice.
Regardless of your insurance, Sound works with you to ensure you have all the documentation needed to contact your insurance provider to determine coverage. Patients who have out-of network coverage often receive partial or total reimbursement following services at our clinic.

Over the past few weeks Sound has been out in the community conducting speech and hearing screenings. One of the most common questions we receive is "When should my child make all their speech sounds correctly?" A few years ago we dedicated a blog post to speech sound development, and thought it was time to draw attention to articulation again in our blog.
For most parents, teachers, and even other medical professionals, it is hard to know if the sounds being heard are developmentally appropriate, or if the (adorable) speech is teetering into an articulation delay. We put together a "cheat sheet" to know the ages at which we expect mastery of each consonant sound in English. If you ever have questions or concerns, we always encourage reaching out to an SLP to schedule an evaluation.
Our audiologist and speech language pathologists are LA bound for the 2017 American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention. Our team is beyond excited to join 15,000 speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists for the 3-day event that provides an opportunity to learn about the latest research, clinical skills, techniques, tools and resources. We can't wait to bring "home" new ideas to implement with our team and patients.
