Mission: Ohio Valley Voices teaches children who are deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH) to listen and talk.

Serving Our Community:

Ohio Valley Voices (OVV) is an early intervention program serving children who are D/HH from birth to second grade and their families. We provide individualized speech and language therapy to enable a child with cochlear implants or hearing aids to communicate fully. Graduates from our program are “mainstreamed” into their local public or private school, most speaking the same as their hearing peers.

Our curriculum is centered on creating a comfortable and loving environment that fosters confidence and a life-long love of learning through speaking. With unmatched outcomes and no equivalent services within 150 miles, we are the best opportunity for children who are D/HH to reach their fullest potential.
