(Times Photo by Billy Upshaw) Speech and Hearing Center Is Inspected An inspection of the Mollie Webb Speech and Hearing Center was conducted Tuesday afternoon by representatives from the Louisiana State University Medical School in Shreveport. The inspection was an examination, medical school business manager Robert Graves said, to see if the renovation of the building housing the center meets contract specifications. The center is a project of the Junior League of Shreveport and the Caddo Foundation for Exceptional Children and is housed on medical school property at the Linwood complex. Those making Tuesday's tour were Graves; Charlie Martin of Baton Rouge, architect for LSU; Lester C. Haas, president of the Caddo Foundation for Exceptional Children; and Wally Savell, head of the physical plant for the medical school. Dr. Barbara Zimmerman, director of the clinic, emphasized that the center is not yet opened and work is not yet completed on the building. An open house will mark the official opening of the clinic, probably in September, she said. The center will serve the Ark-La-Tex and provide speech disorder evaluation and therapy, hearing evaluation and therapy, lip-reading instruction, psychometric therapy and hearing aid consultation. A parent-infant guidance service will be included for children too young to enter the ' deaf-oral program within the school system.
