About Identify the Signs
An American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Campaign
The Identify the Signs campaign aims to educate the public about the warning signs of communication disorders. Speech, language, and hearing disorders are treatable and early detection is a major contributor to speedier recoveries, shortened treatment periods, and reduced costs for individuals and society alike. Visitors are encouraged to use this site to learn the warning signs; get professional help, if necessary; and share the site and its information with family, friends, and social networks.
ASHA works with other national organizations to further the reach of the Identify the Signs campaign with key public and professional audiences.
