May is Speech and Hearing Month

“Speak well. Hear well. Live well.”

Did you know that 1 in 6 people in Canada has a speech, language or hearing disorder?

If you have concerns about your child’s speech, language or communication skills, contact your school Principal or Special Education Resource Teacher (SERT) to see how to get in touch with one of our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP). Early detection and intervention is important in helping people “Speak well. Hear well. Live well.”

How we help:
- Prevention
- Collaboration
- Modelling
- Adaptations
- Screening & Assessments
- Identification
- Intervention

Help spread the word by posting your message, photo or video to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #communicateawareness.
