TO CELEBRATE Speech and Language Month in May, local speech and language pathologists held their annual contest for a newborn that month.

The winner, chosen from names of mothers who gave birth in May, received a basket of goodies designed to help the baby and parents develop the child’s speech and language as he or she grows.

This year, some of those items included a quilt, books, and hearing protection too.

The contest is held every year with  assistance from the BC Association of Speech and Language Pathologists and Audiologists and Northern Health Authority.
