Hearing and speaking are involved in every aspect of our lives – personal and professional - physical, mental and emotional.

Hearing and speaking are involved in every aspect of our lives – personal and professional - physical, mental and emotional.

Even when we are asleep, we rely on our hearing to alert us to a baby’s cry, a sick child, or even an intruder to the home and we rely on speech to call for help or to convey reassurance or instructions.

Accident, illness or aging, can all impair hearing and speech.

 Timely diagnosis and treatment are critical.

Right now there are some minor scope of practice changes for audiologists and speech language pathologists that the Ontario Government could make to help eliminate unnecessary waiting and delays in diagnosis and treatment.

These minor changes will go a long way to making the health care system more cost effective and most importantly, more responsive to patient need by providing timely care with positive outcomes.

We encourage each of you to reach out to your new MPPs to congratulate them on their win, and to briefly explain the scope of practices changes we are seeking. You can do this by using the attached template letter as a starting point. 

It’s about making patients and their care the top priority.

Please support scope of practice changes so we can Say It Hear It Now.
