Follow The BRAINS Channel on YouTube to see future episodes of Speech Bubble! Episode 5 includes The Silence Challenge and is the second episode of Better Hearing and Speech Month 2020. The Silence Challenge is designed to help individuals recognize the importance of speech and language, build an appreciation for your ability to hear, and learn other ways to communicate without verbal speech. We’ll be sharing more about the value of speech and language and the profession in recognition of BHSM in every Speech Bubble during the month of May!
