Each May, Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) gives us an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders. This month is the perfect time to shine a spotlight on speech and hearing issues as well as evaluate our communication capabilities. Speech and hearing disorders often go unnoticed due to fear of being singled out or a lack of knowledge.
A speech therapist can help you with speech, language, and swallowing. They provide speech therapy to children and adults who may have speech or language disorders. Speech therapists, commonly known as speech-language pathologists (SLPs), are highly educated, trained, and experienced professionals. They often work as a team to help patients overcome a wide range of difficulties.
