Better Hearing & Speech Month Roundup–Week 5

Second place winner of the BHSM Drawing Contest--by Paul Gammaitoni, Age 7

Sadly, Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) has come to a close! So many great posts, articles, events, tweets and stories shared–the messages will undoubtedly resound well beyond this one month. Here are just a few of the many great posts we noticed from this last week of BHSM:

  •  The Kansas Speech-Language-Hearing Association produced five podcasts in honor of BHSM examining issues relevant to SLPs and audiologists.
  • Even the Department of Defense’s Hearing Center of Excellence got involved in highlighting the importance of BHSM, sharing plans to embark on a campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of noise later this year.
  • The Technology in (Spl) Education blog featured many SLP guest posts throughout May in honor of BHSM.
  • The Standford School of Medicine blog Hearing Loss Cure posted a great summary of  more BHSM efforts undertaken by various organizations, and reminded us of the importance of keeping the spirit of BHSM alive throughout the year.

Thanks again to all who commented on the week 1 , week 2 week 3 and week 4 roundup posts–please share any last BHSM blog posts and other resources in the comments.

  1. Thank you for sharing all the fabulous resources and links. We work in a wonderful field! I shared a few funny stories from language samples on my blog, SpeakWell, ReadWell: http://speakwellreadwell.blogspot.com/ I hope you’ll drop by and take a look.

  2. As an SLP who also has an interest in health, nutrition and all things food-related, I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate this theme into my therapy sessions—thus, http://www.speechsnacks.com was formed! I posted a fun recipe idea for Better Hearing And Speech Month called “Success Cookies” (it’s not too late to use—will work as an end of the school year activity as well) Take a peek at the recipe for Articulation Success and poem for your kiddos included in the post—-Hope you find it delicious, useful and inspirational—Speak Well & Eat Well, “Speechsnacks”

  3. Thank you so much for mentioning our post and for your weekly round-ups, which were really great. The online participation in marking BHSM has been really exciting to follow. I look forward to seeing this momentum continue and build.
