Just as hearing loss comes in all shapes and sizes depending on the unique features
It's important now, more than ever, to understand hearing loss, the impact of masks and social distancing, how to advocate for oneself, and use compensatory and repair strategies to help make communication successful.
The programs focus on teaching patients how to improve vocal volume, speech clarity, swallowing skills, and cognitive abilities.

What people say about us?
Our family is beyond pleased with our experiences with Dr. Egan. She is thorough, explains procedure and findings expertly, and is very patient with my children. Nicole is also great with insurance follow up information and scheduling. The Campbell Family
My daughter was a client of Speech and Hearing Associates for about 2 years and she was seen by Holli Wasser at our home. When my daughter met Holli, it was upon being recommended by the mother of another one of Hollie’s clients in Westfield. At this point, my daughter was devastated by the loss of her voice (vocal nodes), as this was the “one” thing she felt was something that was unique to her and was a gift after going through some very trying times while growing up….and it was taken away. For about 3 years my daughter truly could not and then would not sing…until we found Holli. Holli was always encouraging, positive, and for an anxious kid who pushes and expects a lot of herself, this was a great balance. My daughter still remembers techniques that Holli taught her (I see it when she sings) and made her more self-aware about things without making her feel self-conscious…again…that takes sensitivity with my girl. I just wanted to share as we will be moving onto college in a different state now and had a great experience with Holli and plan on visiting her when my daughter comes back from college from time to time for, we’re hoping some voice lessons now.

Dr. Livelli, the audiologist, was very helpful. I like the fact that I can come back for hearing aid visits for 1 year without paying for the visit. Yesterday I was fitted for a pair of hearing aids. I kept them in all day without much of a problem. Margaret S.
Our son has been going to Speech & Hearing Associates for a little over 2 months. He is making progress and looks forward to going every week! In fact he is always excited to arrive and always wants to stay longer. To me that speaks volumes! I look forward to see him progress as we continue his Speech Therapy. S. S.
My experience with SHA was very thorough and professional. I was able to have all my questions answered. It was very pleasant and personal. Mary V.
I would like to say thank you to Dr. Susan Woods and your dedicated team for their compassion and expertise. I’m truly grateful and comforted to know that there are outstanding speech and hearing offices like yours out there! Julia C.
