BATON ROUGE - A non-profit group broke ground today in Baton Rouge for a new therapy center to help people with speech and hearing difficulties.

The facility at the LSU Innovation Park will be called the Emerge Center for Communication, Behavior and Development. Members of the Baton Rouge Speech and Hearing Foundation said it will offer therapy for people who have trouble communicating, regardless of their ability to pay.

Foundation members said demand has risen for their services, so a new and larger facility was needed. So far they've raised $6.4 million toward their goal of $7 million for the new building.

The Emerge Center is scheduled to open in 2014.
