Be a part of the Blogosphere -- ASHA Style

ASHA's  ASHAsphere is an online venue created to feature the latest opinion and information related to audiology and speech-language pathology and provides an excellent way for members to contribute as bloggers to discuss developing issues within the profession. ASHAsphere's goals are: inspire discussion about issues related to the fields of audiology and speech pathology, and features posts from a variety of authors, including communication sciences and disorders (CSD) professionals and ASHA staff. Posts written by ASHA members reflect their own thoughts and opinions, and publication in ASHAsphere does not imply ASHA’s endorsement of products or services they may write about.

A February 21, 2012 article by Melissa Jakubowitz, M.A., CCC-SLP, titled The Time Has Come for Speech Language License Portabilitymakes the case that license portability would enable speech-language pathologists to provide services wherever and whenever needed, thereby unleashing the full potential of telepractice to reduce costs and administrative burdens, increase access to services, broaden career opportunities for speech-language pathologists and improve outcomes for K-12 students and clients in diverse practice settings. Jakubowitz added that it would also facilitate inter-state practice and thus enable speech-language pathologists who live near state lines to practice in adjacent states where personnel shortages may exist. Greater labor mobility is necessary to serve geographically shifting populations in the US.
