(Speech Therapy, Savannah) The Speech Clinic on how hearing issues/ear infections affect children’s speech

Saturday, August 27th, 2022
Meet The Speech Clinic therapist
Ansley Sellers of Wilmington Island/Savannah

Speech Therapy in Savannah: Impact of Hearing Issues/Ear Infections

Do you have concerns about your child’s hearing? Do they have a history or ear infections?

Your child may not be hearing well if they are: not following directions well, often ask for repetition of what you said, respond slowly or don’t respond when spoken to, or having trouble paying attention.

Persistent ear infections can have major impacts on your child hearing due to fluid in the middle ear. Imagine if you were trying to hear something underwater- That is what it might sound like to your child. This can affect their acquisition of speech and language.

Once the ear infections are treated, the therapists at The Speech Clinic of the Coastal Empire can help assess and treat any speech/language delays.

SouthCoast Health on when your child should have an eye exam

Tuesday, August 16th, 2022
Savannah eye doctors

Eyes Exams for Children in Savannah

Does your child need an eye exam, and if so, when should they have one? Here’s everything parents should know about eye care for children.

SouthCoast Health provides info here on everything parents should know about eye care for children.

Eye care experts from the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommend that children receive their first screening at birth, and then again at six months to check that their eyes are developing normally. Thereafter, it’s a good idea to bring your child for an exam annually.

 “Eye exams are more than just a way to determine whether your child may need glasses,” says SouthCoast Health optometrist, Edward D. Sammons, O.D (pictured) in Savannah. “They’re also a form of ongoing, preventive care.” 

Learn about vision screenings at schools and what to expect at pediatric eye exams here.

If you have a six years old or older child due for an eye exam, schedule an appointment with one of SouthCoast Health’s eye care providers by calling 912-691-3600. SouthCoast Health offers comprehensive care for patients of all ages, including eye care for children and adults. See SouthCoast Health’s full list of primary care and specialty services online.
