 We conducted a questionnaire survey on activities to raise public awareness in relation to "Japan Speech and Hearing Day", September 1. The survey was conducted across Japan by prefectural associations of speech-language-hearing therapists (SLHTs). The goals of the survey were firstly to understand the current situation, and secondly to share information. The questionnaire was sent to associations who had agreed to participate in the study. It included questions about the frequency of events, the contents of events, the number of staff, and the type of handouts. Thirty associations returned their answers. They reported holding an event once a year, most commonly in September. The number of staff at events was reported to be between 1 and 10 and the budgets were in the range 10,000 to 50,000 yen. Dyaphagia diet samples and pamphlets were frequently handed out. Many events had consultation booths and panel exhibitions. Activities in which visitors could participate were popular. As a result of the survey, the prefectural associations were found to spend a small budget and involve a small number of staff in the activities. Nevertheless, the events provided valuable opportunities for local residents and SLHTs to interact with each other. It was thought to be beneficial to share the information across the country related to such events in order to make them more effective, while at the same time reducing financial costs and staffing requirements.
