Southwest Louisiana’s Most Trusted Team of Audiologists in South Lake Charles
Creole and Cajun culture abound in Lake Charles, showing up in our Lake Charles Symphony and Lake Charles Little Theater (second oldest community theater in Louisiana), as well as the Imperial Calcasieu Museum, the Historic City Hall Arts and Cultural Center, the Black Heritage Art Gallery, and a wide range of museums and galleries throughout our community.
Lake Charles plays an essential role in the economic and cultural health of Louisiana and the entire nation. In similar fashion, your hearing plays a major role in keeping you healthy, which is why it is essential to seek the help of an audiologist rather than allow hearing loss to threaten your independent lifestyle.
In 1976, when audiologist and Major Steven W. Morris completed his service in the US Army, he established Acadian Hearing & Speech Services in Lake Charles. Expanding into our South Lake Charles location in 2020, we continue to build on our solid foundation by advancing our reputation as the most trusted team of audiologists not only in Southwest Louisiana, but all across the state.
Our belief that nobody should have to live with hearing loss led to the development of our Acadian Gives Back program, which provides those in need with professionally refurbished hearing devices that have been donated by our incredible patients. Along with our comprehensive hearing assessments, our renowned expertise in balance and vestibular disorders, and advanced technology hearing aids, our team of audiologists make it possible for those with hearing loss in Lake Charles and surrounding communities to reconnect with their family, friends, and community.

Best-in-Class Hearing Aid Technology to Fit Your Independent Lifestyle
When you think of hearing aids, the bulky, frustrating devices your parents or grandparents used to wear probably come to mind. However, today’s hearing aid technology is nothing like it was even a decade ago.
Smaller, lighter, nearly invisible, much more powerful, and user-friendly are all features of modern hearing aid technology. In addition to greater hearing clarity, even in noisy environments, our best-in-class hearing aid technology includes connectivity options that allow you to link your hearing aid to your smartphone, laptop, PC, and other digital devices for an enhanced hearing experience.
With a wide range of styles, colors, and levels of technology available, Southwest Louisiana has access to hearing aids that fit your hearing needs, personal preferences, and independent lifestyle.
Your Child’s Hearing Care Is a Priority for Acadian Hearing
According to the CDC, hearing loss prevalence in US infants in 2019 showed 1.7 per 1,000 babies were born with hearing loss, while the state of Louisiana sees a prevalence of 2 per 1,000.
Because infant hearing loss has a significant negative impact on speech and language development, the state of Louisiana mandates screening infants for hearing loss. Your hospital typically schedules a diagnostic ABR/DPOAE examination with an audiologist from Acadian Hearing and Speech Services after your baby is born, but many of our clients come to us from states where early screening is not common.
Our concern for infant and childhood hearing loss has led to the development of one of the state’s leading infant testing centers for hearing loss, helping us detect hearing loss challenges before the age of six months in order to provide successful hearing care interventions that limit the impact of hearing loss on your child’s development.>

These people are true professionals
At first, Colleen’s hearing loss seemed funny, but soon it became clear it wasn’t a laughing matter.
Colleen recalls, “For several years, I misunderstood what my family were saying. It started out as a family joke. ‘You need hearing aids. Ha!’ It got progressively worse.”
Before visiting Acadian Hearing Services, Colleen didn’t have any worries. She says, “My desire to be able to HEAR properly obliterated my fears. I just knew that I needed help.”
For over 30 years Acadian Hearing has been my go-to-place for all my hearing needs.
Maria has worn hearing aids for over 40 years, but she recalls the moment she discovered she had a hearing loss quite vividly.
She says, “I was 26 years old and volunteering at the school my 6-year-old son was attending. The school nurse was testing hearing that day. By chance, she demonstrated the equipment by testing my hearing. I was shocked to learn I had hearing loss in both ears. I had no idea! I was so young.”
