​​May is Speech, Language and Hearing Month!

Every May, our Speech and Language Department raises awareness about communication health. This year, we are highlighting the rights of our students with communication disabilities. 

THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMUNICATE IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT.
  • Communication is the most fundamental of human capacities.
  • People need to be able to communicate to fulfil their social, educational, emotional and vocational potential. 
  • Everybody has the potential to communicate.

At TCDSB, our speech-language pathologists 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.

The poster below outlines the communication rights of all students, including and especially those who use Augmentative and A​lternative methods of Communication.
