  • Alisha Springle, Assistant Professor, Indiana University-South Bend is conducting a research study.  Details are as follows:
    Title:  Share Your Experiences and Knowledge in a Child Language Intervention Survey 
    Text:  I am conducting a research study titled Current Practice in Multisensory Methods for Language Therapy to document therapeutic techniques for oral language development in children with language impairment in use by SLPs.  I am particularly interested in the different sensory modalities involved. I am hoping to expand what we know about how we provide language intervention and allow comparison of the sensory techniques actively used in face-to-face vs tele-practice therapy sessions.  Please participate in this survey: 

    https://iu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ekt78ujSY6zx5Ln  

    Completing the survey takes about 20 minutes of your time and asks you to rate how frequently you use specific strategies within your therapy practice.  At the completion of the survey, you have the option to join a lottery to win one of three annual memberships to SpeechPathology.com, an online provider of ASHA-approved CE content.  If you wish to do so, your contact information will be retained for that purpose.  A follow-up study is planned.  If you are interested in learning more about it, you will have the opportunity to provide contact information for that purpose as well.  Responses to survey questions will be held anonymously and confidentially. There is a risk of possible loss of confidentiality. Efforts will be made to keep your personal information confidential. All records will be stored in password protected computers in a locked research lab, access by only approved researchers who have been trained on privacy and confidentiality. There are no benefits to you for participating in this study.  This study is titled Current Practice in Multisensory Methods for Language Therapy and approved through Indiana University (IRB# 2012957297).  If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact me, Alisha Springle, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL at aspringl@iu.edu. For questions about your rights as a research participant, to discuss problems, complaints, or concerns about a research study, or to obtain information or to offer input, please contact the IU Human Subjects Office at 800-696-2949 or at irb@iu.edu Please feel free to share this opportunity with your friends and colleagues.  Thank you for helping us learn more about what we do in language therapy!  Dr. Alisha Springle, Assistant Professor, Speech Language Pathology, Vera Dwyer College of Health Sciences, Indiana University – South Bend

  • SHAA is pleased to announce that as of April, 2021 the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Interstate Compact (ASLP-IC) has been enacted into law in ten states. Alabama was the 7th state to pass this legislation. The compact has now officially secured enough members to activate and establish the ASLP Compact Commission.  The other states included in the initial compact are as follows: Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Nebraska, North Carolina, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming. An SLP and an Audiology representative from the ABESPA Board will be a part of the commission which sets up the rules and bylaws for this compact.  Once the compact is fully operational, hopefully by the summer of 2022, licensed Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists will be able to apply to use this privilege in person and through telehealth in other ASLP-IC states without having to hold a license in that state. SHAA is proud that our members, board, and lobbyist were part of the team that helped get this important legislation passed. Be on the lookout for more information in the future.

  • Starting with the 2020 - 2022 interval, ASHA now requires one hour of ethics training per three-year interval.  ASHA requires every CCC-SLP who supervises or intends to supervise any grad student or CF to accrue two hours of supervision/clinical instruction training once in his or her career.
