As president of the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS), I would like to bring the membership of Division 2 up to date on the process of specialty recognition. Last year, the Division 2 Steering Committee encouraged ANCDS to go forth as a petitioning body for specialty recognition in the area of neurogenic communication disorders.
As most of you know, specialty recognition is one vehicle for recognizing people who specialize in the area of neurologic communication disorders.
Some form of recognition is considered valuable for consumers (clients and their families), for related health care professionals, and for members of our own profession, in identifying the best source of services for clients with particular needs—in this case, neurologic speech and language services. The concept of specialty recognition acknowledges that some people within the profession specialize in all or part of their practices.
