On behalf of the SIG 13 Coordinating Committee, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning members.
For those of you who are Special Interest Group (SIG) 13 first-timers, our mission is to provide leadership and advocacy for issues in swallowing and swallowing disorders and to serve affiliates who evaluate and manage individuals with swallowing and feeding disorders across the lifespan by supporting professional development, research, education, and communication necessary for delivery of the highest quality services.
SIGs are grassroot efforts, started by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) affiliates and run by volunteer leadership. Membership provides a smaller community within the larger ASHA setting and is an important way for members to have a voice within ASHA. SIG 13 is proud to be the largest SIG, made strong by continuous member contributions. You will quickly find that others across the country have the same interests and concerns that you have, and that colleagues and leading experts in dysphagia are available to help via the SIG 13 Community. Whether you have many years of experience or are new to the field, I'm confident that the SIG 13 Community has a place for you.
