BHSM Stories: Maple Ridge Public Health Unit, Fraser Health Authority
Maple Ridge, BC, Canada
I am a SLP in Vancouver, BC and work in prevention at a
community public health clinic. I treat and service children from
birth to five years of age.
In celebrating "May is Hearing & Speech Month,"
I have put together a large display on language & speech
development in children in our waiting area (which will be up for
the whole month of May). Take home brochures (created by my
colleagues and I) highlighting the first five years of a
child's speech/ language development have been placed beside
the display for parents to take home. I have also our
administrative staff to place starburst stickers that read
"May is Hearing & Speech Month" on all out-going
mail for our different programs in public health; i.e. dental,
nutrition, audiology/ speech, nursing, environmental health,
community disease prevention, etc.
Thank you for allowing me to share!
