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.

- Learn or improve lip reading skills.
- Develop strategies with family members to make communication easier.
The benefits of developing social skills in everyday activities are imperative to a person’s ability to communicate appropriately in social settings. Our practice offers social communication group programs that specifically focuses on:

What people say about us?
I have been a long-term patient of Dr. Livelli and saw her most recently in December of 2020 for my yearly hearing test and hearing aid adjustments. As always, Dr. Livelli was very thorough, patient, and professional. She is an excellent listener and makes every effort to help me get the maximum benefit from my hearing aids. She is also enthusiastic and friendly and I image she would be very effective with children. She certainly is with seniors such as myself, even helping with technology issues! I would recommend her unconditionally. In this year of COVID19, just want to mention that the office and staff are very COVID19 compliant/conscious and take appropriate measures to ensure health and safety. I felt very comfortable. Ann S.
I was very pleased with Jackie at the desk upon entering the office and also with Dr. Egan who did the testing. I never felt rushed and knew I had her undivided attention throughout the entire time I was with her. I am hopeful that I will have a good experience adjusting to the hearing aids and also believe I will have help from SHA making that adjustment. Marie C.
Dr. Susan Woods was very professional with me today! She took her time and explained things to me as far as the results from my hearing test. She spoke to me in a language I could understand. There was no pressuring me to buy a hearing aid that day. She laid out my options and because of this I will return to this office! Dr. Woods was GREAT! Very down to earth! Jean J.
Thank you for all of your help with my son. You are amazing and we are lucky to have found you. Please continue to send all of your positive vibes to our little guy! Maddie V.
I can’t say enough about Dr. Mindel and the staff in the Park Ridge office. Everyone was most helpful and considerate. I was provided with all the testing and information I needed to make an informed decision regarding hearing aids. I highly recommend Speech and Hearing Associates! Joseph N.
The entire experience at Speech and Hearing Associates was smooth and masterful. Dr. Egan and her staff were always responsive and willing to help. SHA provides quality care. Peter P.
