May is “Better Speech and Hearing Month,” a month dedicated to raising awareness about communication disorders and the professionals who treat them. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s (ASHA) campaign, Identify the Signs, seeks to help parents recognize signs of speech, language, and hearing disorders and find the help needed to address these disorders.
If you think your child may have problems with speech, language, or hearing do not hesitate to contact The Speech Spot for a free phone consultation discussing your concerns. Identifying a communication disorder early plays a key role in how soon effective and appropriate treatment can take place.
