Caring About Communication Health

We experience the world through our senses, by communicating with each other and with our surroundings. We use communication to learn, to express ourselves, to work and to build and nurture relationships.

Communication disorders can have a significant impact on our physical, emotional, social, vocational and financial well-being. The earlier that a disorder is identified and treated, the better a person’s chances are for improvement or even recovery.
