Better Speech and Hearing Month

May is “Better Speech and Hearing Month,” and the speech-language pathologists at Manatee have been working all year to help students improve their communication skills.

One activity that develops language is reading aloud to others. Younger brothers and sisters especially enjoy it when big sisters and brothers take time to read books to them. Most children’s books are written with sentence structures and vocabulary that are not always used in general conversation, so it is great practice to read aloud. Parents may read out loud, too!

For speech, it is often helpful for a student to look in a mirror while practicing sounds. Students may try practicing their speech sounds for a few minutes after brushing their teeth, while looking in the mirror.

Another good skill to practice is rhyming words, since it helps develop listening as well as early reading skills. Try making up silly rhymes, and imagine what the word might be. For example, “A vack is on my back. What could a vack be?” Perhaps students could describe and draw the “vack.”

Many students at Manatee have practiced speech sounds, made up rhyming words, and read books out loud to the members of their group. We speech-language pathologists celebrate communication every day, but especially in May.
