Better Hearing and Speech Month

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month


May Is Better Hearing and Speech Month (MBHSM) is a month-long observance aimed at increasing awareness of communication and swallowing disorders and the life-changing services that speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and those within related fields provide. 

This year, TSHA is splitting up MBHSM into four weekly celebrations of the audiology and speech-language pathology industry:

  • May 1 - 6: Medical & Private Practice
  • May 7 - 13: Public Schools
  • May 14 - 20: University/Professional Issues
  • May 21 - 27: Advocacy 

This month, join the Texas Speech-Language-Hearing Association (TSHA) in promoting the important work you do by participating in the following fun activities.

Share Your Story on Social
