May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

Enrichment Therapies

May 1, 2015

Did you know that an estimated 40 million Americans experience speech, language, and/or hearing disorders?

As we celebrate Better Hearing and Speech Month we want to stress the importance of early detection and intervention of speech and hearing disorders.

  • Early intervention is transformative – Many communication disorders can be reversed or even prevented with early treatment.
  • Early intervention is efficient – Early treatment takes less time and money. Every $1 spent in early age saves $7 in education and services later on.
  • Early intervention is necessary – Early treatment can help prevent children from falling behind developmentally, academically, and socially.
  • Early intervention is accessible – Give us a call if you suspect a speech or hearing disorder with your child. We will help get you the intervention that your child needs.

Every day we see that untreated communication disorders often lead to larger academic, social, and developmental issues. Early diagnosis is the most powerful way to reduce or even reverse their impact and can give your loved ones the opportunity to lead the fullest lives possible.
