The monthly news magazine for and about speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists, The ASHA Leader provides news you can use and showcases the latest research and practice advances in communication sciences and disorders. Celebrating the wide range of people at the heart of the discipline, The ASHA Leader also illuminates the day-to-day work and lives of the 182,000 members of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Although content submitted to The Leader is subject to internal editorial review by staff and content experts at the ASHA national office, it is a newsmagazine, and thus is not governed by scholarly peer review.
The Identify the Signs campaign aims to educate the public about the warning signs of communication disorders. Speech, language, and hearing disorders are treatable and early detection is a major contributor to speedier recoveries, shortened treatment periods, and reduced costs for individuals and society alike. Visitors are encouraged to use this site to learn the warning signs; get professional help, if necessary; and share the site and its information with family, friends, and social networks.
