Every May, ASHA‘s Better Hearing & Speech Month raises awareness about communication disorders and the role of ASHA members in providing intervention. The 2017 theme is “Communication: The Key to Connection.”

Their diligent evaluations and thoughtful intervention strategies can most certainly change a student’s life for the better.
