Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) is here. Haven’t made plans yet? We’ve got an easy, fun way to get involved and raise awareness. Sign up to Speak Up!

Social Media Contest: Speaking Up For Communication is ASHA’s popular BHSM social media contest. Members who sign up for this free program will receive two to three e-mails a week with eye-catching social media shareables that educate on communication disorders and the professionals who treat them (you!).

Weekly Prizes: ($50 Amazon gift cards) will be awarded. The shareables will spotlight four different weekly themes, and members can sign up to receive whichever one(s) interest them. The four topics are:

  • Early Milestones and Signs of Communication Disorders
  • Hearing Disorders in School-Aged Children
  • Older Americans and Falls
  • Swallowing Disorders in Adults

With one click, you choose to share whatever you like, on whichever social media platform you like. Have fun while participating in this grassroots public education effort. Sign up today. Take a look at examples from last year, and note that this year’s materials will start populating in the system May 1.

What Else?

ASHA will also be providing press release and a variety of other templates for members to use during BHSM. Visit our site to see what’s available. Keep checking back as we get closer to May.

Don’t forget to also order your BHSM merchandise. This year’s offerings are colorful and festive, featuring the 2018 tagline, Communication for All. There are items for every budget. Take a look in the BHSM Store!
