Speech and Hearing Services for Children and Adults

Fairfax County Health Department Speech and Hearing staff

We help children and adults in Fairfax County communicate more clearly with speech, hearing and reading services.

Young girl sounds out the letter S with a female speech therapist"I can understand her when we talk on the phone." When a physical issue in her daughter's mouth structure made it difficult to pronounce certain sounds, a Fairfax Mom turned to us for help. After attending regular speech sessions, this Mom reports she can now understand her daughter’s speech — even when she phones home from work.

Free Speech Screenings

In recognition of National Speech-Language-Hearing Month, the Speech and Hearing program will offer free speech screenings (testing) for children ages 3 – 7 years at several county libraries.


Our services include screening and evaluation, group and individual speech therapy, teletherapy, a stroke club, and reading program for children.
