Speech and Langage Month 2019
May is speech, language and hearing month and the perfect time to check your child’s speech and language skills. Even though all babies have a hearing test at birth, you should have your child’s hearing rechecked if you have concerns about their speech or hearing. Frequent ear infections can interfere with hearing and learning language.
You can check your child’s speech skills here or speak to a public health nurse at your local health unit.
