This past year saw a number of impressive legislative victories and advancements for ASHA and Division 2 affiliates and individuals with communications disorders at both the federal and state level. Much of this success can be attributed to a renewed sense of urgency and activism on the part of individual speech-language pathologists and audiologists, squaring off against harmful government policies, such as Medicare’s $1,500 cap or promoting early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI) legislation. At the core of this resurgence has been the establishment of an annual process to focus the Association’s advocacy resources, making it possible to move issues that had become stalemated or perceived to be unachievable.
