As you have most likely seen or heard about, the Alabama Senate passed SB 119, a bill with the goal to repeal common core from the state of Alabama. While there were amendments made which excluded important national assessments like the ACT, Advanced Placement tests and National Board Certification, there are still many things within the bill which could result in unintended consequences for educators, the educational system and for students in our state. You can contact your state representative using the link below:
It is SHAA's mission to advance the disciplines of speech-language pathology and audiology in order to provide support for professionals while advocating quality services. I encourage you to support our fellow SLPs and audiologists who work in the schools by contacting your representative to express any concerns you may have about SB 119.

Dr. Michelle Therrien and Dr. Elizabeth Madden, both researchers at Florida State University, are conducting a study focusing on the perspectives and clinical services provided by speech-language pathologists (SLPs) who work with clients with aphasia.
About the study: This study is a qualitative exploration of SLPs’ priorities when considering goals, activities, and methods of progress measurement for their clients with aphasia. We intend to discuss how SLPs who work with clients with aphasia define and target their treatment goals, and what factors contribute to successful treatment of clients with aphasia. The ultimate goal of this study is to gain a greater understanding of aphasia treatment from the perspective of speech-language pathologists across the United States.
Who can participate? Participants must:
-Be employed as an SLP working with clients with aphasia (part-time or full-time) in the United States
-Currently have Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association
-Be able to read and respond to survey questions in English
-Have access to the internet
What is expected of participants? Participants will complete a survey that will take approximately 30 minutes. Upon completion, you will have the option to provide your email address to be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Amazon gift card (one for every 50 participants!).
