Celebrate speech and hearing

TO CELEBRATE Speech and Hearing month, a local group will give free items to one new mother.

TO CELEBRATE Speech and Hearing month, a local group will give free items to one new mother.

The Terrace Child Development Centre (CDC) will draw the name of a mother who has a baby in May to win a basket full of items that promote speech and language.

During the month, professionals who work in the treatment of speech, language and hearing disorders raise awareness about their professions and the issues around the disorders.

The idea is to encourage early detection and prevention of communication disorders, and to increase public understanding of challenges faced by individuals with these disorders.

Speech language pathologists have expertise in typical development and disorders of communication and swallowing.

Audiologists are health professionals who identify, diagnose and manage individuals with hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and balance disorders.

The CDC will place a ballot box at Mills Memorial Hospital to collect names of mothers who have babies in May.
