Spreading the Word: Making the Most of Better Hearing and Speech Month
- Use ready-made BHSM tools— ASHA produces free resources such as a BHSM poster, press release and media advisory templates, and much more to help celebrate and promote BHSM. These are available on the BHSM member resource page. ASHA also offers for-sale products for audiologists and speech-language pathologists that can be used as gifts, prizes or awareness-raising tools.
Download the Identify the Signs member toolkit— The Identify the Signs campaign includes a host of resources in the member toolkit, which can be used during BHSM and year-round. These capitalize on the eye-catching visuals of the campaign, and include posters, bookmarks, fact sheets, Facebook cover photos and more.
Share Your Stories— ASHA members are full of creative and unique ideas when it comes to recognizing BHSM. From staff lunches, student contests, free speech and hearing screenings, advocacy events—get inspired by perusing fellow members’ stories in the Share Your Stories section of the BHSM page. Better yet, submit a story for a chance to be featured by ASHA!
Participate in ASHA events and contests— ASHA is planning a number of exciting ways to celebrate BHSM. We’ll be inviting members to showcase how they are recognizing BHSM in our “Day in the Life, BHSM Edition” Instagram contest (for a chance to win a fabulous BHSM package); organizing a Twitter party on communication disorders. Stay tuned for more details on all of these exciting initiatives.
