The mission of Lexington Hearing & Speech Center is to teach children with hearing, speech, and language impairments to listen and talk. We do this by providing high-quality educational, clinical, and family support services.

Lexington Hearing & Speech Center (LHSC) is a private, nonprofit agency with over 50 years of experience working with children with hearing loss and/or speech/language impairments. The Center began in 1960 as a preschool for children with hearing loss after a group of parents approached the founders, Jimmy and Edie Frankel, with a request to create an educational alternative to the state residential school for the deaf.

From this, LHSC has grown into an established community agency that provides services for children and their parents from infancy to age 18, as well as for adults, within three areas: the education programs of the Early Learning Center, the Audiology Clinic and the Speech-Language Pathology Clinic.

Our services include the following and more:

Elderly patient with audiologist Our Philosophy
The professionals at Lexington Hearing & Speech Center respect children, adults, and all family members as individuals with unique strengths and needs. We advocate for early identification and intervention to encourage development of hearing, speech, and language in children and to prevent communication decline due to hearing loss in adults. By focusing on the whole person, we provide a stimulating environment that builds on each person’s abilities. We believe each child can and will develop listening and spoken language skills.
Our Goal
Our goal is for children to leave LHSC with the language and independence to be an active participant in their communities. These skills and abilities are the foundation necessary for future learning.
