Celebrating Better Hearing & Speech Month 2018
Category : Better Hearing & Speech Month , Blog , Language, Literacy & Learning
Welcome May 1st, 2018
Children’s Communication Center invites you to participate in our May is Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) Celebration!
This year’s theme from our national professional association, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is Communication For All!
Beginning With Our Littlest Ones!
We are thrilled to share the BHSM focus on early language development and the connection to early literacy and learning in our little ones. We will be posing these by age ranges throughout the month.
SO, be sure to watch for updated blog posts and add your LIKE & FOLLOW to our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for all the BHSM activities and events!
Through ASHA’s collaboration with Read Aloud, this message will reach more families and benefit more children!
Why Are We Excited?
In 2017, this Center donated three Little Free Library (LFL) units to the City of Tallahassee and dedicated our LFLs to the families of our community during our Take Your Parents to the Playground Event as part of BHSM 2017.
Our Little Free Libraries Are Different!
Our LFLs are at the community playground at Winthrop Park. This playground is not only in the same neighborhood as our Center, it is a site which is widely used by the children, teens, and families all-year-long.
The Difference Is The Emphasis On Little Ones!
Our libraries are reachable for little hands and with three units there is space to share books for little ones, early readers, chapter books, young adults, and parenting.
Our LFLs focus on the importance of family reading.
Let’s read with, read to, and read along side our children for 15 minutes each day!
We are proud to share that Lori Savage Grayson, our director and founder, is serving as an ASHA Ambassador again this year as we celebrate BHSM.
Watch for the our BHSM activities and events, including the 1 Year Anniversary Celebration of our LFLs!
