The website for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is vast with information for both the profession and for consumers. It offers policy, practice and position papers for both the speech pathologist and the audiologist. One must be a member of ASHA to access all the resources, such as journals, continuing education and other areas.

I have used a number of their resources for instruction in an introduction to communication disorders class. They have an exceptionally helpful area for cultural competence and multicultural training.
