Guidelines for Letters to the Editor of The ASHA Leader

We welcome letters to The ASHA Leader and consider every letter for publication in the "Inbox" section on a space-available basis. Include your name, address, daytime phone number, and/or email address.

To give more members an opportunity to voice their opinions or concerns, letters should not exceed 250 words. (Parenthetical citations and reference lists will not be included in letters; if you need to refer to a specific research article, please provide a website link for it within the text of your letter and spell out the name of the first author.) Letters beyond two per year by the same author will have lower priority for publication.

Opinions expressed are those of the writer. Publication of a letter does not imply ASHA's endorsement of the author's views. Letters become the property of ASHA and may be edited or abridged. Letters that attack, ridicule, denounce, impugn a person's character, or impute immoral or dishonorable attributes to members on the basis of race or ethnicity, gender, age, religion, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation will not be published. Letters must be original; The ASHA Leader will not knowingly publish letters that have appeared in other publications.
