Speech, Language and Hearing Awareness Month


May is Speech, Language and Hearing Awareness Month in Canada.

Did you know that speech and language delays are the most frequently reported problem in children?
Early speech and language development has a major impact on future academic success. For example, research shows that a child’s vocabulary when starting school is a prime predictor of school success or failure. We also know that early language skills are directly related to later reading skills, and that children with poor language development have difficulty using language to learn math and science.
If you have a concern about your child’s speech or language, your school Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) can help! Speak to your child’s teacher or school principal to find out more, or contact the Speech and Language Department at 416-222-8282, extension 2261.
You can find more information in the Speech and Language Department website​
