Genetics in the Practice of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology
Speech-language pathology and audiology students, faculty, and professionals comprise the audience for a genetics-education program on the Web. The goal of the instruction is to provide practical examples of how genetics is clinically relevant for patients and families and how it may change speech-language and audiology practice. ASHA and AAA have partnered with NCHPEG to offer 0.3 CEUs at a minimal cost for completing evaluation questions. Access the NCHPEG website for more information.

Compendium of Clinical Practice Guidelines and Systematic Reviews
Clinical practice guidelines from around the world related to audiology and/or speech-language pathology. Only those guidelines with an overall rating of "Highly Recommended" or "Recommended with Provisos" based on the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE) Framework are included in this registry. Also included in this compendium are a limited number of systematic reviews. These reviews can be an important and time-saving resource for clinicians wishing to incorporate evidence into their clinical decision making.
