Joint Committee on Interprofessional Relations
ASHA and Division 40 (Clinical Neuropsychology) of the
American Psychology Association
The mission of this interdisciplinary committee, composed of
clinical neuropsychologists and speech-language pathologists, is
- 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;
- Foster communication and collaborative work between
for the benefit of both professions.
We acknowledge and respect the mutual interest of our
disciplines in cognitive and linguistic processes, as well as the
unique competencies and contributions of each.
