Heuser Hearing Institute (HHI) is a multi-specialty nonprofit campus promoting the needs of children and adults with disorders of hearing and balance. Our organization has been serving Louisville and many of the surrounding Kentucky and Indiana communities since 1948. HHI began as an educational center called the Louisville Deaf Oral School many decades ago. In 2008, Heuser’s scope and mission officially expanded into the Heuser Hearing Institute.
Today, the institute includes three facilities: the Heuser Hearing & Language Academy, which offers outstanding preschool and kindergarten programs for children with speech and hearing challenges; the Heuser Hearing Clinic, which is home to a full-time staff of audiologists and otolaryngologists serving patients of all ages; and the regional Heuser Early Intervention Program, which provides home-based services for infants and toddlers through the Kentucky and Indiana First Steps programs.
