Letter - Identify signs of communications disorders during Better Hearing and Speech Month

Icon viewers:

With 8%–9% of young children suffering from speech disorders, May’s Better Hearing and Speech Month is the perfect time for parents to learn how to recognize the early signs of these disorders. I am encouraging parents to educate themselves through the Identify the Signs campaign, a national effort of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

The campaign is designed to combat an overall lack of awareness about communication disorders—a major barrier to treatment for the more than 40 million total Americans who suffer.

Letter: Thanks for all the great information on the Icon

Ada Icon:
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of the great Ada information. As an Ada native, now living in Japan, your site has been a wonderful way to keep up on my hometown`s local events and happenings.

Kind Regards,
Craig Hoffman
