High Level Speech & Hearing Center CEO Dr. Lana Joseph is partnering with InspireNOLA for the “InspireNOLA Back to School Backpack Giveaway” event, providing free preliminary speech and hearing screenings and treatment for attendees. The community-wide event will feature free school supplies and a brand new backpack available for families enrolled in InspireNOLA Charter Schools as well as students enrolled in New Orleans public schools. An estimated 40 million Americans have trouble speaking or hearing due to a communication disorder. Millions more family members and friends are also impacted. Here in New Orleans, there are parents reading this whose children are struggling to speak or understand language; spouses living with partners whose hearing is deteriorating; and co-workers, neighbors and others who see someone who needs help but don’t know what to do. High Level Speech and Hearing Center offers tools to change that through a team of seven speech pathologists and audiologists, currently ranked among the top eight in New Orleans in 2018. High Level Speech and Hearing partners with schools, daycare centers, and nursing homes, bringing screenings to those who need them most. This is a free community event open to all families enrolled in InspireNOLA Charter Schools as well as students enrolled in New Orleans public schools. Supplies will be given out on a first come, first served basis. Free speech and hearing screening will be available throughout the duration of the event.
