Better Speech and Hearing

Student examining model of the human mouthFor the month of May, our speech students at Roosevelt School are celebrating Better Speech and Hearing Month. Although awareness of speech and hearing difficulties is a year-round necessity, setting aside a month calls special attention to identifying and treating the troubles associated with speech and hearing.  To celebrate, our Roosevelt students are learning all about the different parts of their mouth and how each part helps us make sounds.  They are also learning fun facts about speech and hearing. For example: Did you know that to produce a phrase, about 100 muscles of the chest, neck, jaw, tongue, and lips must coordinate? or that Sound travels at the speed of 1,130 feet per second.  That’s 770 miles per hour! Students are having a blast learning new facts and growing a better understanding of speech and hearing. They are also helping to grow awareness throughout Roosevelt School by creating posters. Please help us spread the word about Better Speech and Hearing Month!!!
