Speech & Hearing Month

www.speechandhearing.ca | #communicateawareness

Many of us take our ability to communicate for granted, but the ability to speak, hear and be heard is much more vital to our everyday lives than most of us realize. For those who have difficulty communicating, everyday interactions can pose significant challenges. A communication disorder may prevent an individual from performing well at work, asking for help, hearing instructions at school or even saying ‘I love you’.

Each year, Speech-Language & Audiology Canada (SAC) dedicates the month of May to raising public awareness about communication health. We work to highlight the importance of early detection and intervention in the treatment of communication disorders, and the role that our members and associates play in helping people overcome and/or manage them.

Our Speech & Hearing Month website is your one-stop shop for everything you need to celebrate Speech & Hearing Month! Be sure to visit the site regularly throughout May as we'll be posting ongoing events and sharing information to raise awareness about various issues related to communication health and the professions.
