It's PrAACtically Better Hearing & Speech Month
A- A+

Here in the US, today is the start of Better Hearing and Speech Month (#BHSM).This year’s theme, Communication-The Key to Connection, has lots of prAACtical implications. The American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) sponsors activities and shares resources every year, encouraging us to build awareness of communication and the professionals who serve those with speech, language, hearing, and swallowing disorders.

For those of us interested in AAC, it’s also an opportunity to help our fellow professionals better understand the needs of people with complex communication needs.

There are lots of ways that you can get involved to support AAC and spread the word about effective AAC practices to colleagues and families. Click on the image below to learn about what the ASHA is doing and to get a few ideas to get you started. Let’s make an impact.
