I was given a copy of your letter reviewing the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s (ASHA) Special Interest Division 4 Fluency and Fluency Disorders Fifth Annual Leadership Conference. Your position relative to the meeting and outcomes was clearly stated. It may be that we will never see eye-to-eye on this issue, but I would like to present the view from ASHA’s treatment outcomes project.
The goal of the ASHA National Outcomes Measurement System for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (NOMS) is to provide members of the Association with data relative to functional outcomes. At the Fluency Leadership Conference, you referenced work on outcomes being done under National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants. I asked that this be shared with me and to date have not received this.
