Don't We Already Do Inclusion? with Paula Kluth. October 17, 2017 at the Southwest Virginia High Ed Center, Abingdon, Virginia. Registration coming Summer 2017.
May is Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM). Our theme for 2017 is "Communication: The Key to Connection.” BHSM provides an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders and role of ASHA members in providing life-altering treatment. Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM) was founded in 1927, by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The aim of BHSM is to raise awareness about hearing and speech problems, encouraging people to analyze their own hearing and speech, and to take action if they think there might be a problem. Treatment can then be given to improve the quality of life in people with communication problems. Better Hearing and Speech Month also encourages parents and teachers to identify possible speech and language problems in their children and students which can affect his or her learning and self-esteem.
Throughout the month of May, ASHA partners with national and local stakeholders to engage in a multifaceted public education campaign to raise awareness about the critical need to intervene early when young children are identified with communication disorders. The Coffee Break Webinars will focus on raising awareness about the use of assistive technology and the importance of frequent hearing screenings. Please join the Coffee Break webinar series to learn more about assistive technology and hearing screening. There is no pre-registration to join the webinars.
