It's Better Hearing and Speech Month!

May is one of our favorite months - it is Better Hearing and Speech Month! Established by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), this awareness month promotes public health education and access. This year’s theme is “Connecting People.”

Communication is our way of connecting to the world. We experience the world and connect with the people we love through hearing and communicating. Many people have difficulty communicating because of hearing loss or speech disorders. According to the CDC, 48 million Americans are affected by hearing loss, and one in ten has a communication disorder.

This month, Tidewater Speech Therapy is raising awareness regarding communication disorders and available treatment options for those who have difficulty speaking or hearing. Stay tuned to our blog for the latest helpful information, tips, and resources!
