During “May Is Better Hearing and Speech Month,” Play Works Gorge Children’s Therapies will offer free speech and language screenings for the Hood River community.
Screenings will be open to children ages 2 years to 12 years between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday, May 6, and from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, May 12.
Certified speech-language pathologists will evaluate children for communication concerns, including language disorders, speech sound disorders, stuttering (disfluency), and voice disorders. They will also be able to answer parents’ questions about their child’s communication development. Parents may review the early signs of a speech or language disorder at identifythesigns.org.
Play Works is located at 512 Cascade Ave., Suite 100, in Hood River. For more information, contact Sarah McDonnell at 541-716-1316.
