As you prepare for the school year during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic—with various levels of physical and virtual reopening options across the country—we know you’re facing unique challenges as speech-language pathologists. We’re here to help you navigate personal safety, return to in-person services and/or telepractice, share important information with parents, and join ASHA in advocating for yourself and your work.
Get more COVID-19 information and back-to-school resources from ASHA, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the ASHA Action Center (800-498-2071) with school-based clinical or professional questions.
Find guidance on mask use, physical distancing, infection control, and more. (ASHA’s advocacy position calls for school districts to prioritize safety in making decisions to physically reopen schools.)
Get support to make the switch to virtual services a little bit smoother.
Help parents and families navigate their child’s communication needs during the ongoing pandemic.
