The time had come. In Hilton Head, back in 1994 at the first Leadership Conference of Division 4, I witnessed and supported the professional and consumer outcry for a higher standard of service and an increase in the training of speech-language pathologists in the area of fluency disorders. Since that time, hundreds, possibly thousands of volunteer hours have been devoted to improving the quality of service for those who stutter and their families.
Another first in ASHA’s history, the pioneering effort of the Specialty Recognition Program on Fluency Disorders, continues to lead the pack as we are now renewing Board Recognition for those in the Inaugural Cadre established in 2000-2001. And we are now mentoring more and more practitioners seeking this recognition. We were the first to achieve Board Recognition and others now follow. The Child Language Division is in the process of accepting their Inaugural Cadre and the Dysphagia group is in the process of creating guidelines. We are honored that these other divisions look to us for inspiration and guidance.
