Special Interest Group 14: Melissa’s Perspective
Whether you’re new to the field of speech pathology or an experienced clinician, it’s always helpful to have a community to connect with! Our clinical director, Melissa White, is currently the associate coordinator for ASHA’s SIG 14 group and will be the coordinator next year. This Special Interest Group focuses on cultural and linguistic diversity, offering a network of therapists and resources to help speech pathologists who support diverse populations.
Melissa was selected by the ASHA leader as part of their “Spotlight on Special Interest Groups” series this month. She was asked why she joined the group, how it’s helped her as a bilingual clinician, and some other pressing questions to help dig deeper into this group’s purpose.
