May is Better Speech and Hearing Month

Better Speech and Hearing Month is a time to raise public awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the various forms of communication disorders including those of hearing, speech, language, and voice.
Speech and language disorders take many forms such as articulation, voice, stuttering, and receptive and expressive language difficulties. These impairments may be learning based, acquired, or the result of accidental injury or illness at any age.

Speech and language disorders can limit academic achievement and social adjustment within their educational setting.  As a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) I work to prevent, identify and treat various forms of communication impairments including speech, language, voice, stuttering, hearing, and related disorders.

To celebrate this month, students receiving speech and language services at Glendale will be creating speech graffiti in the main hallway to promote better communication skills.  In addition, my website and/or blog contains further information about speech and language development, in addition to, a number of speech and language based activities for children to interact with at
