In the October 2005 issue of Perspectives, we described one of the goals of the Education and Mentoring Committee, which is to recruit young people into our field, specifically to work with individuals with acquired neurogenic communication disorders. The popular press is continually reporting new research findings related to brain function and dysfunction. According to a recent article in The New York Times(Carey, 2006), “the brain has become a pop star.” So now is a great time to focus our efforts on recruitment. To that end, one of our goals is to create products and resources that introduce high school students and college freshman to the important work that we do with individuals who have neurogenic communication disorders. We are still looking for published materials and PowerPoint presentations to aid in this recruitment effort. We are interested in a broad range of topics, from overviews of the central nervous system, to more specific speech and language disorders that result from diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, etc. Please consider sharing any materials that you have by contacting Mary Purdy (purdym1@southernct.edu).
