This alert is to inform you of a discussion that is happening at this moment in our association regarding the Clinical Doctorate in SLP (SLPD). There is an active exploration by ASHA to make the Clinical Doctorate in SLP an entry level degree for Speech-Language Pathology. ASHA members have an opportunity to send feedback on this topic to the ASHA Board of Directors. Although the original resolution has been withdrawn, it is important for members to give feedback NOW, as the board considers a new resolution on this subject.
Write to the ASHA Board of Directors, and let them know how you feel about making this fundamental change in our profession. You may let your opinion be known by submitting your feedback at http://www.asha.org/Form/Board-of-Directors-Feedback/.
