Periodically, Perspectives will feature Updates From Division 16 to inform you of the many activities of Division 16, including for 2003:
  • Three information-packed newsletters with self-study opportunities and available CEUs. The July issue represents a collaboration with Division 1, Language, Learning and Education. It will address various service delivery models.

  • Division 16-sponsored courses at ASHA Convention.

  • Discounts on select division-sponsored Convention Short Courses.

  • A new, improved, exclusive E-mail List. If you haven’t joined yet, please see the instructions in this issue. And, don’t forget to visit the Division Web page at http://professional.asha.org/resources/divs/div_16.cfm!

  • A Division 16-hosted Web forum on ASHA’s professional site (in 2003 or 2004). Last year’s first-ever division-hosted forum, put on by Division 16 and Division 13, Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders was a huge success. The topic was “Dysphagia Management in Schools.” Check out the archived forum (http://forums.asha.org/discussion?14@@.ef35ab9/0) in the members only section of ASHA’s site.

  • A state liaison networking system. Results of a recent ASHA survey indicated that Division 16 affiliates want more of a feeling of “connection” and interaction. We are setting up a state liaison networking system to address this. To volunteer to help, contact Ninevah Murray at nmurdn@mindspring.com.

  • Promotional packets about Division 16. To help “spread the word” about Division 16, information is being developed for distribution by division affiliates at their state conventions, school meetings, or other programs. Contact Ninevah Murray, if you can help.

  • “Appropriate School Facilities for Students With Speech and Language Disorders.” This new, updated ASHA facilities document was developed by Division 16, the Educational Audiology Association, and the ASHA schools staff. The technical report is available online at http://professional.asha.org/resources/loader.cfm?url=/commonspot/security/getfile.cfm&PageID=20532.

  • Still available: “Literacy and Communication Expectations, Grades K Through Five.” For your free copy of this brochure, developed by ASHA, in collaboration with Divisions 16 and 1, call the Action Center at 800–498–2071.

  • Implementation of the new ASHA caseload/workload document. Division 16 affiliates Ellen Estomin, Ninevah Murray and Patti Iafrate-Bellini are part of a cadre that will be visiting states to talk about the document. Ellen also represents Division 16 on the (ASHA) ASPIIRE Committee (Associations of Service Providers Implementing IDEA Reforms in Education Partnerships).
