It’s almost Better Hearing Speech Month (BHSM)! In May, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) encourages us to raise awareness about communication disorders and what we have to offer as a field!

It can feel incredibly overwhelming to take on another project on top of our already overflowing workload, but here are a few free and low-prep ideas to participate in BHSM! Every little bit helps!

Free Resources to Celebrate BHSM


ASHA posts materials (e.g., posters, coloring pages, handouts) to get us started!

2. Bulletin Board Display

I love this bulletin board display by Short and Sweet Speech! It would be super easy to print out some of the visuals and attach them to a bulletin board or door.

An SLP also used the cards in the free download to set up a little treat station for her teachers:

3. Handouts and Gifts

Natalie Snyders is the queen of speech therapy handouts, and this freebie bundle does not disappoint. The free download includes handouts (Tips to Promote Better Speech and Hearing in the Classroom and What Does an SLP Do Anyway? and Hearing Protection), a trivia contest, and gift tags (for a water bottle and a highlighter).

    Do you have another way to send the bulletin board? Do not have instagram.
    If not, no problem
