At Marin General Hospital, our speech and audiology program is offered to both inpatients and outpatients. We are one of only three providers in the Bay Area that offer diagnostic, audiological and rehabilitative services to newborns, infants, toddlers, and older children covered by California Childrens Services. In comparison to other local facilities, we offer a shorter wait time to receive these services.
We treat language delays in children aged 0-21 years old and also provide evaluation and treatment for issues including articulation, oral motor development, language, and fluency. For our adult patients, we provide therapy for strokes, head trauma, progressive neurological diseases, and degenerative neurological conditions.
We also provide a full range of diagnostic and rehabilitative audiology services for patients of all ages. Our Audiologists and Speech Pathologists work closely with other services in Marin, including the Marin County Office of Education Hearing Impaired and Communication Disorder program; the Golden Gate Regional Center for children with developmental disabilities; RotaCare; the Marin Community Clinic; and the Marin Head Injury Network.
