Social Services Minister June Draude has proclaimed May 2012 as Speech and Hearing Awareness Month in Saskatchewan.
"Hearing loss is one of the fastest growing disabilities," Draude said. "With almost one in five Canadians experiencing some form of hearing loss, awareness and testing is vital in order for people to get the assistance they need. I want to thank Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services for the valuable services they provide and their continued work to raise awareness of issues affecting people with speech and hearing disabilities."
"The Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services is pleased that the Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed May as Speech and Hearing Awareness Month as it helps focus public attention on the issues that derive from hearing loss," Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Executive Director Roger Carver said.
Saskatchewan Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (SDHHS) has been providing services since 1981. For more information about hearing loss and related services, please contact the SDHHS toll-free at 1-800-667-6575, or visit their website at http://www.sdhhs.com .
