The public section of the ASHA website features many articles just for parents. For example, if you are interested in learning more about social language use (pragmatic language), just click on Speech, Language and Swallowing--->Development--->Social Language Use (Pragmatics). On that page, there is basic information about pragmatic language, and even another link for pragmatic language tips.
Or, say you're wondering about Cochlear Implants. Start by clicking on Hearing and Balance--->Hearing Aids, Cochlear Implants and Assistive Technology-->Cochlear Implants Overview. Learn how to pronounce it (koe-klee-er), how it works, and find links for additional resources.
It's really a great resource for all areas of speech, language and hearing for the public. If you work with an SLP or audiologist who is an ASHA member, you can even share your story.
Check it out as a starting point for resources for all things speech, language and hearing!
