14. The Future of School Speech-Language Pathology

Kids stuff for school.

ASHA once and for all must make an investment in the School Office.  It is invisible in the discourse of evolving school policy.  It was on track when Dr. Kathleen Whitmire was director but it is not leading the way in school reform.

Without historical budget information available, we suggest tripling the budget for the School Office.  It should be led by two experienced doctoral level directors with vast experience in schools.  It should have a monthly page in the ASHA Leader.   The directors must address issues in detail without regard for politically correct statements.  The School Office should have adequate space and clerical support.  In the ASHA building it should be apparent to  visitors as a significant business office. One director should be a permanent member of the Board of Directors.
