Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) is just days away, but it's not too late to get involved. Here is what ASHA has in store this May:
2021 Theme and Weekly Focus Areas
The 2021 BHSM theme is "Building Connections." It's particularly relevant after a year of living in a pandemic environment-which made clear the critical importance of human connection and challenged us all to find new ways to connect. ASHA will focus on these topics where ASHA members build connections every day:
For each topic, ASHA will have customizable press release templates for members to use with their local media (see tips for doing this sort of outreach here), social media shareables, and printable handouts that can be posted, linked to, and otherwise shared within your community. Be sure to check www.asha.org/bhsm weekly.
Speaking Up For Communication
ASHA will once again offer its popular BHSM social media contest, Speaking Up For Communication. Over 5,000 members are already signed up to participate. The program allows members to easily celebrate BHSM on their personal and professional social media accounts. Sign up (it's free), and you'll receive 2–3 shareable graphics via email per week that you can post to your accounts with one click. Nothing is shared without your approval. For added fun, ASHA will award one $50 Amazon gift card each week via a random drawing of participants. Become a BHSM Champion: Sign up to Speak Up throughout the month of May! Visit asha.socialtoaster.com to get started.
We've got the free resources you need to make BHSM festive for your workplace, from posters to Zoom backgrounds. Visit www.asha.org/bhsm to download these materials.
