Get Involved

Help us spread the word about the importance of communication health this May! Whether you’re a communication health professional, a person with a communication disorder or a parent or caregiver, there are many ways you can get involved.

We'd love to hear about what you're doing to celebrate Speech and Hearing Month this year, so please send us an email (with photos, if possible) to tell us how you're marking #maymonth.

Join Us On Social Media

One of the best ways you can help celebrate Speech and Hearing Month is by supporting our SAC Speech and Hearing Month social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter. You can use the #maymonth hashtag in your posts and share our messages with your followers. Stay tuned for information on how you can download our Facebook cover photo and Twibbon to promote Speech and Hearing Month.

This year, in addition to our own social media campaign, we will be launching an exciting and interactive social media campaign with the Pan-Canadian Alliance to raise awareness about communication health challenges. Watch for more information on the campaign in your inbox and on social media when the campaign is officially launched on May 1.

Start a Conversation

Look for opportunities in your community or workplace to educate others about the importance of communication health. You could give a presentation during a monthly staff meeting, host an information booth in your community or workplace, write a letter to your local newspaper or even host an event. You could also write a letter or arrange a meeting with your local Member of Parliament asking them to recognize Speech and Hearing Month on their website and social media. 

Use Our Free Resources

Our website is home to a variety of communication health resources. Print off a few posters, information sheets and brochures and display them where you work or study. You can also share our activity sheets with any kids you know and take them to local doctors' offices, daycare centres and schools. If you work with children under 11 be sure to encourage them to participate in our Kids' Contest
