May is Better Hearing and Speech Month
- Families who are concerned about their child's hearing often don't know where to turn for help. Doctors and family resource organizations can help by linking families to these Just in Time resources [PDF]. There is a Spanish version [PDF] as well.
- ASHA-certified audiologist Dr. Patti Martin talks about what to expect from a newborn hearing screening, why it is important, and how to identify the signs of hearing loss within the first year of a child's life.

Check the NCHAM Facebook page often throughout the month of May to see resources, materials and information that can help both professionals and families.
