BHSM Stories: Perry Public Schools
At my school, we celebrated Better Speech and Hearing Month by
hosting a speech-language ice cream social. Parents donated
toppings galore and the kids had a blast being able to choose
from any kind of topping imaginable...even gummy spiders! Our
speech-language students, parents, and staff were invited.
Materials, games and books we use during therapy were available
on tables for kids and adults to play with and explore. The
information by grade level available on the ASHA website was also
available to parents and staff. The coloring contest pages were
on another table along with crayons and colored pencils for the
kids to draw their reflections of speech-language therapy.
Following our celebration, we hung the drawings outside the
"speech-language room" to display until we have to get
them in the mail to you! Our gift to teachers was a bottle of
water with information regarding voice and vocal hygiene.
Thanks for all your ideas! We had a blast celebrating this
