Speech-language pathology and audiology professionals participate in a lengthy and diverse list of advocacy activities. Advocating on behalf of both clients and the professions is increasingly important for speech language pathologists (Hallowell & Chapey, 2001) and audiologists. A professional’s choice of advocacy activities is influenced in part by factors such as professional setting, perceived roles, and defined purposes. Accessing ASHA-sponsored advocacy activities is one means of advocating for the profession. To advocate for clients, professionals may access information and participating in consumer groups. Ultimately, many clients also will access information and participate in activities to become successful self-advocates.
