  • 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.

    • 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.

    • Dr. Megan Overby and Magdalena DiFazio of the Duquesne University Speech-Language Pathology department are seeking certified speech-language pathologists who are at least 18 years of age to participate in a 26-item survey (with 4 open-ended questions) about current beliefs and treatment of clients with lateralization errors (“slushy sounding” fricatives and/or affricates). The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. You may stop the survey at any time if you do not wish to continue, and responses are anonymous.  For questions, please contact Megan Overby at overbym@duq.edu. This investigation has been approved by the Duquesne University IRB. To take the survey, click or copy the link below. (Note: The /r/ in the link is part of Survey Monkey’s designation and is not meant to suggest /r/ is lateralized.) https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/lateralizations
