The ASHA Leader, December 2017, Vol. 22, 62. doi:10.1044/leader.AN6.22122017.62
The ASHA Board of Directors recently voted to:
  • Amend the ASHA Bylaws Article VIII, Professional Standards and Ethics—Section 8.1, Council for Clinical Certification in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, and Section 8.3, Board of Ethics—to meet certification best practices, comport with industry standards, and show transparency in professional discipline.

  • Renew the recognition for state speech-language-hearing associations in 10 states: South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

  • Establish the Ad Committee on the Scope of Practice in Audiology to identify areas in the current scope of practice that need to be updated, revised, clarified or deleted.

  • Extend until Oct. 21, 2018, the Ad Hoc Committee for Technical Support to the National Institutions (Ministry of Health and the National Secretariat for Human Rights of Persons with Disabilities) of Paraguay under the ASHA/Pan American Health Organization collaboration to allow the committee to complete its charge to provide technical assistance.

  • Support the four cross-disciplinary personnel competency areas—collaboration and coordination, family-centered practice, interventions as informed by evidence, and professionalism and ethics—as developed by the Early Childhood Personnel Center (ECPC) in collaboration with ASHA and six other national organizations.

  • Appoint Patricia Prelock as ASHA’s ECPC representative.
