A New Haven, Connecticut based company is trialing the use of ultra-sound to see if it can improve and speed up a patient’s ability to see as well as hear their speech during therapy sessions.

Haskins Laboratories, a speech and language organization, is the only laboratory in New England carrying out this clinical research and just one of ten organizations across the U.S. looking at ultra-sound.
