A Message About the Name “Better Hearing and Speech Month”

Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM) has been recognized by its current name since 1972, marking its 50th year in this iteration. ASHA has initiated a review of the name and is considering whether a change is warranted for future years. Pros and cons are associated with both actions: (1) changing the name, regardless of what the new name would be, and (2) keeping the current name. A renaming of BHSM would not take effect until at least 2023. If you would like to submit a name for consideration, please send it to
