ASHA invites school-based speech-language pathologists and audiologists to apply for the spring Leadership Development Program, which helps participants develop leadership skills, coach and mentor others, and develop strategies for preventing and managing conflict.
All applicants must work in schools and never have served on an ASHA or ASHA special interest group committee, board, council, working group or task force. Preference will be given to SIG members and past leaders of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association. The program is limited to 30 participants.
The year-long program will begin with a workshop on Thursday, July 11, the day before ASHA's Schools Conference in Long Beach, Calif. Those in the program also will participate in six web seminars, identify and develop a learning project, and be part of a learning team with program colleagues. Applications must be submitted by April 3 at 3 p.m. (ET).
Individual learning projects for SLPs should focus on one of the following:
  • Performance assessment of SLPs' contributions and effectiveness.

  • Response-to-intervention.

  • Changing roles and responsibilities.

  • Workload/caseload.

  • Common Core State Standards.

  • Individual learning projects for audiologists should focus on one of the following:

  • School hearing screening.

  • Linking IEP goals to Common Core Standards for students with hearing loss.

  • Classroom acoustics.

  • Managing audiology support personnel.

For more information or to apply, visit ASHA's Leadership Development Program or contact Haley Jones, volunteer operations manager, at hjones@asha.org.
Andrea Falzarano (afalzarano@asha.org) is ASHA director of association governance operations.
