In the last issue of Perspectives, I spoke about action that had been taken at Legislative Council in March 2003 bringing into question ASHA involvement in the Speech-Language Pathology Assistant Programs. I also mentioned that the decisions made at this meeting were based primarily on budgetary concerns and not on a widespread point of view that the such programs at ASHA should be discontinued. Since that article appeared, several individuals from around the country have been brainstorming and exploring options that might help retain ASHA involvement in these programs. Those plans are not yet finalized, so it would be premature to discuss them in any detail at this time. Instead, I think it is important to discuss why we need ASHA to remain involved in these programs.
