Tips for healthy speech and hearing:
- One in 10 Canadians has a speech, language or hearing problem.
- Hearing loss is the third most prevalent chronic disability among older adults, behind arthritis and hypertension.
- Communication disorders in school-aged children are often misdiagnosed as learning disabilities or behavioural problems, and can be very difficult to treat in later years.
