About Us

Welcome to Speech & Hearing Associates!

Speech & Hearing Associates (SHA) is dedicated to being one of northern and central New Jersey’s largest and most comprehensive private practices providing compassionate, quality speech-language pathology and audiology services to adults and children in New Jersey and New York.

Quality speech-language pathology and audiology services are the outgrowth of highly qualified professional staff and ongoing professional development obtained via continuing education programs, sharing of learned knowledge and professional mentoring occurring on a regular basis, as well as understanding and use of currently accepted professional practices and resources.

We’re dedicated to helping people lead more fulfilling lives through the use of the tools essential to maximize their communication potential. Whether this means helping a child say their first words, expanding their vocabulary or helping with treatment options such as speech therapy or hearing aids, our speech-language pathologists and audiologists take the time and have the expertise for the success and satisfaction of our patients.

SHA is proud of our longstanding reputation of excellence and award-winning practices. Established in 1969, SHA has grown to nine offices in eight New Jersey counties (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, and Union). In addition to our private offices, SHA professionals provide services in schools and physician offices.
