Joint Committee on Interprofessional Relations Between ASHA and Division 40 (Society for Clinical Neuropsychology) of the American Psychological Association
The mission of
this interdisciplinary committee, composed of clinical neuropsychologists
and speech-language pathologists, is to:
- Improve the
clinical care of patients with congenital or acquired brain impairment
by identifying and promoting assessment and rehabilitation practices
that are both compatible with current neuropsychology knowledge and of
demonstrable functional benefit to patients and their families; and
- Foster communication and collaborative work between clinical
neuropsychologists and speech-language
pathologists for the benefit of both professions.
acknowledge and respect the mutual interest of our disciplines in
cognitive and linguistic processes, as well as the unique competencies
and contributions of each.
