Join ASHA for a Twitter Party (learn more about communication disorders and win prizes)

Better Hearing and Speech Month is well under way. We have highlighted some fabulous app sales offered by developers in recognition of BHSM. Smart Apps for Special Needs is also committed to helping professionals and parents find resources to learn more about communication issues. The American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) is sponsoring a Twitter Party in conjunction with parenting blogger Michele McGraw (@scrappinmichele) and other bloggers. This virtual party will take place on May 20 from 12pm to 1pm eastern time. Parents, professionals, or anyone interested will have the chance to ask/answer questions related to speech, language or hearing disorders. No registration is required just follow the hashtag #BHSMChat on Twitter or through Tweetchat. Mark your calendars and join the party or share this information with the families you work with. Participants might even win a prize!

Be sure to check out the ASHA website for more great information about ways to promote Better Hearing and Speech Month as well as their Identify the Signs Campaign. This campaign is designed to educate the public about the warning signs of early communication disorders.
