Attention, traveling speech therapists! Did you know that the month of May is designated by ASHA as Better Speech and Hearing Month? Therapists, their patients and recent graduates of speech pathology programs are encouraged to raise public awareness on communication disorders, expected to grow in number as Baby Boomers age; many of these seniors may one day require therapy for neurological disorders and associated speech, language, and swallowing impairments.
But it’s not just retirees in need of your therapist skills. Adolescents are also keeping speech language pathologist jobs in high demand, with noise related hearing loss cited as a contributing factor in many recorded cases of hearing loss among American youth today. It’s success at speech therapy that helps these adolescents dodge the statistic of being 4 to 5 times as likely to suffer from learning problems due to hearing loss. This May, get the word out at your local library, on your clinic bulletin board, and anywhere the general public may take note, about the positive differences speech language therapy can make – it’s what Better Speech and Hearing Month is all about!
Work in Travel Therapy Jobs and Help Restore the Human Connection
50 States Staffing would like to take the opportunity to thank its devoted speech language pathologists for helping every patient, regardless of age or diagnosis, transgress the hurdles that come with each unique communication disorder; as Helen Keller, a turn of the century pioneer for the deaf and blind once said, a lack of speech and hearing separated her from other people, and it was her teacher, Anne Sullivan who helped restore the human connection. For today’s like-minded miracle workers who work in speech language pathology jobs, healthcare employers that include schools, clinics and rehab hospitals across America are saying keep up the good work!
