May is Better Hearing and Speech Month, and in recognition of this, the Speech and Language Clinic at South Peninsula Hospital will offer free speech and language screenings all month. Whether you are concerned about your child's intelligibility, academic success or social skills, this is an opportunity to receive feedback on how you can support your child's communication development.
