May Is Better Hearing and Speech Month!
Therapies and Resources for Children with Autism & Families
At Peak Potential Therapy, we are proud to recognize and participate in Better Hearing and Speech Month during the month of May. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) uses this month to raise awareness about communication disorders and the resources that exist to provide life-altering treatment.
Their theme for this year is, “Communication: The Key to Connection.” We believe in this theme at Peak Potential Therapy, as communication is the foundation to much of our work. When parents, caregivers, therapists, teachers and administrators are all in communication and working together on behalf of a child, amazing progress can be made. We also work with children to help them learn how to best communicate with those around them and navigate their daily environment.
The ASHA has many resources available online and will be continuing to update during each week of May. Check out resources like Kids and Autism: How Speech-Language Pathologists Help and Preventing Hearing Loss: 8 Tips for Noisy Environments.
At Peak Potential Therapy, we also provide a variety of resources for children who are experiencing a speech, language or fluency disorder. If you are not sure if your child is experiencing a speech delay or disorder, start by taking one of our speech-language self evaluations. This can be the first step toward contacting your doctor or a therapist for a formal assessment, which we strongly recommend.
To learn more about our speech therapy services, please complete an intake form and a member of our team will be in touch to discuss your child’s unique needs and goals.
