Join Us On Social Media
One of the best ways you can help celebrate Speech and Hearing Month is by supporting our SAC Speech and Hearing Month social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter. You can use the #speechandhearing hashtag in your posts and share our messages with your followers. Stay tuned for information on how you can download our Facebook cover photo and Twibbon to promote Speech and Hearing Month.
In addition to our own social media campaign, we are working with the Pan-Canadian Alliance of speech-language pathology and audiology associations on an exciting and interactive social media campaign to raise awareness about communication health. This new campaign will officially launch in early May – stay tuned!
Start a Conversation
Look for opportunities in your community or workplace to educate others about the importance of communication health. You could give a presentation during a monthly staff meeting, host an information booth in your community or workplace, write a letter to your local newspaper or even host an event. You could also write a letter or arrange a meeting with your local Member of Parliament asking them to recognize Speech and Hearing Month on their website and social media.
Use Our Free Resources
Our website is home to a variety of communication health resources. Print off a few posters, information sheets and brochures and display them where you work or study. You can find all of our resources here.
You can also share our activity sheets with any kids you know or take them to local doctors’ offices, daycare centres and schools. If you work with children under 11 be sure to encourage them to participate in our Kid’s Contest.
