November is always an extra special month because the ASHA Annual Convention gives affiliates in Special Interest Groups additional opportunities to connect as a community, engage in continuing education activities, and socialize in-person. Toward that end, the SIG 1 Coordinating Committee warmly invites you to participate in three SIG 1 sponsored events in Orlando at the 2014 ASHA Convention. Our annual SIG 1 Affiliates' Meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 20, in room W106 of the convention center. We would love to see you there. The next morning, Friday, November 21, at 8 a.m. Dr. Inge-Marie Eigsti, a cognitive psychologist from the University of Connecticut, will present this year's SIG 1 two-hour invited convention session (#1309), entitled “Language in Body and Mind in Autism Spectrum Disorders.” Dr. Eigsti will discuss multi-domain abilities that constrain pragmatic language, as well as her research on “optimal outcomes” —children with Autism Spectrum Disorders who normalize by adolescence. Later that same day, Dr. Douglas Peterson from the University of Wyoming will present the three-hour SIG 1 Short Course (SC 19), entitled “Progress Monitoring of Oral Language: SLPs Taking the Lead and Closing the Gap” beginning at 1:30. This exciting session will train SLPs on a narrative language tool that can be used for progress monitoring with a single caseload or an entire school district. We hope that you will be able to join us at one or all of these events. Each of them has been planned with you in mind.
