About Perspectives and Its Editors
Perspectives is the online member publication for the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The SIGs began publishing newsletters for their affiliates in 1991. Those publications have expanded and evolved over the years and are now reviewed according to the criteria set forth by the Continuing Education Board of ASHA.
Further, all of the SIGs publish content on the graduate level for the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology, enabling readers to earn Continuing Education credits for self-study of Perspectives.
Although subject to editorial review and continuing education review, Perspectives is not a peer reviewed scholarly journal.
Perspectives is focused on narrow topics of interest to professionals practicing in or conducting research related to communications sciences and disorders. Typically, Perspectives is disorder-oriented (e.g., swallowing and swallowing disorders), though some SIGs focus on topics across disorders (e.g., gerontology or diversity) or that relate to pedagogy or supervision.
Each Perspectives boasts an Editor with special knowledge and expertise in the focus topics of that SIG. Each SIG's content is reviewed by a Continuing Education Content Manager and a standing Board of Reviewers who ensure that content meets requirements for ASHA continuing education self-studies.
About Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders
In continuous publication since 1991, Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders (formerly known as the Division 2, Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders Newsletter) is published four times annually (April, June, October, and December) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). This SIG and its publication focus on promoting, interpreting, and disseminating information that is relevant to neurogenic communication disorders and to serve as a conduit for the exchange of information and ideas among SIG affiliates.
