Dear Affiliates,
On behalf of your Special Interest Group (SIG) 1 Language Learning and Education Coordinating Committee, I want to extend the warmest welcome to our new and returning SIG 1 affiliates. Your membership in SIG 1 provides excellent professional development opportunities. Each year, SIG 1 delivers four topical contributions to the Perspectives of the ASHA Special Interest Groups, and SIG 1 affiliates can earn continuing education (CE) credits for these topics by purchasing the $5 CE exam in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Store. The 2017 topics include (a) Supports for Individual With Autism Spectrum Disorders (Teresa Cardon, Topic Editor), (b) Literacy Assessment and Intervention for Young Children (Melanie Schuele, Topic Editor), (c) SLP's Role in Supporting Decoding for Students With Dyslexia and Other Reading Disorders (Suzanne Adloff, Topic Editor), and (d) Supports for English Language Learners (Barbara Rodriguez, Topic Editor). In addition, every October, SIG 1 sponsors a free text-based “live” Web chat with a panel of several of our Perspectives contributors. We also sponsor special ASHA Convention activities including a 3-hour short course (SIG 1 affiliates receive discounted registration) and a free 1-hour seminar provided by an expert in language learning. Details for these professional development opportunities will be provided in my future columns and on our SIG 1 Community. Stay tuned!
