Abstract

School-based members of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) seeking successful advocacy for accessing and obtaining additional funds for services and programs must build their efforts upon an understanding of school funding. Demystifying the complex nature of federal, state, and local funding in order to understand how money flows to local speech-language pathology and audiology programs is the first step toward successful advocacy. In this article, Division 16 affiliates will learn about the important role ASHA's School Finance Committee plays in helping ASHA members understand funding and locate funding sources, and will be provided with tips on advocating for money to support professional and student service needs.
