As this August issue of Perspectives in Language Learning and Education is released, ASHA elections are underway for Special Interest Group (SIG) Coordinating Committee members. The SIG 1 Language Learning and Education Coordinating Committee has two positions open for election this year. If you are a SIG 1 affiliate, please take a few minutes to vote for the candidates of your choice. Every vote has an impact.
June 2013, was certainly busy for your SIG 1 Coordinating Committee. Two of our members, Geralyn Timler and Erin Taylor-Stone, completed ASHA Capitol Hill visits in Washington D.C. They talked with their congressional representatives about topics related to speech-language pathology to inform them about current issues that matter to SIG 1 affiliates. In addition, the SIG 1 Coordinating Committee conducted its annual Face-To-Face meeting at the ASHA National Offices in Rockville, Maryland. Over the course of one and a half days, we completed multiple work sessions to support the development and production of continuing education activities and offerings. Our highest priority is ensuring that the interests and needs of SIG 1 affiliates are addressed through conferences, special projects, publications, and online venues. Every year, in addition to producing Perspectives in Language Learning and Education, SIG 1 offers a short course and sponsors invited sessions at the ASHA Annual Convention, and conducts an annual Web-based event in October. At the 2014 ASHA Annual Convention in Chicago, Bonnie Singer, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, will present the SIG 1 short course. Dr. Singer will address issues of executive function and self-regulation in written language intervention with adolescents. SIG 1 will also be co-sponsoring invited sessions with the Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Language Topic Planning Committee, as well as the School Age Language Topic Planning Committee. If you attend the convention, please join us for these special sessions.
