Last year, ASHA's advocacy efforts shifted drastically to supporting audiologists and speech-language pathologists during the COVID-19 pandemic. With a focus on telepractice and coverage for our services, here are some advocacy highlights from 2020 [PDF]. To learn more about ASHA's advocacy efforts and updates, visit ASHA’s Advocacy News page and review the list of comments, letters, and testimony submitted on issues related to the 2020 Public Policy Agenda.
Each year, ASHA’s Government Affairs and Public Policy Board works with members and staff to create the annual public policy agenda that identifies the top priorities for the professions and guides ASHA’s advocacy efforts. See ASHA's 2021 Public Policy Agenda for this year's top priorities.
