The month of May is recognized as Speech, Language and Hearing Awareness Month. Every May, the staff of the Speech and Language Department raise awareness about communication health and provide information and resources to promote the importance of speech, language, and hearing.

May 2022: Communication Strategies to Support the Mental Health of Students with Special Education Needs


This year, we are highlighting communication strategies to support the mental health of students with special education needs.

At TCDSB, our speech-language pathologists and audiologists help remove barriers to communication so that students can interact with others, learn, share and apply knowledge, achieve and maintain good physical and mental health, and participate in meaningful and purposeful activities.​
