Speech, Language & Hearing Association

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association�s (ASHA) mission statement is to �promote the interests of and provide the highest quality services for professionals in audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech and hearing science.� Their website is designed to help ASHA accomplish this task, and is a valuable resource for anyone involved in this industry. The ASHA has been around for 79 years and in that time has created resources for students and the general public, in order to educate people about speech and communication disorders and diseases. The site includes detailed explanations on many diseases and disorders and provides additional resources for those who want to learn more. For students, there are sections with information on various speech, language, and hearing professions; a guide to academic programs; and a useful guide to the Praxis exam required for many of these professions.
