SLP Roles in SGD Advocacy

May 4, 2021 7:00 pm EDT


Presenter:  Lewis Golinker, Esq

Moderator:  Stephanie Meehan

SGD access and benefit have been and continue to be linked directly to third party funding.  This session will review the essential roles SLPs have filled and the advocacy they have pursued for more than 4 decades to establish, protect and expand SGD funding support.  Case studies will identify how SLP advocacy has supported achievement of specific funding objectives.  Examples also will identify SLP errors that impede or threaten progress. 

Webinar Objectives:  Participants will learn,

  • to define how SGD advocacy is a professional duty, tied directly to the ASHA code of ethics.
  • to be able to describe the numerous advocacy roles that SLPs fill in direct and indirect support of SGD access, use and benefit, including client representation; serving as expert witnesses; providing second opinions; pursuing research; developing position and policy papers; and participating in professional organizations.
  • to understand how SLP membership and participation in professional organizations is of great value to ensure that policy-based barriers affecting SGD access, use and benefit will be withdrawn.
  • to be able to list SLP actions that appear to overlook SGD advocacy and which are potentially harmful to SGD access, use and benefit.

Presenter Disclosures:
Lewis Golinker has no professional or financial conflicts of interest related to the subject matter of this presentation.


** ASHA CEUs will be available for this webinar **

Important Update for 2021:

ISAAC has, over the course of the past number of years, developed a significant capacity to host informative and well-attended webinars. This has been done in close collaboration with our friends and partners at both ISAAC-US (USSAAC), AAIDD and, more recently, ISAAC-Canada.

Beginning in January 2021, the majority of archived webinars will be moved to a new location in the Members Only area portion of our website.  (A number of webinars will continue to be publicly available here.)

What this change means is that now only members will be able to access the majority of our archived webinar recordings.

Registration for the majority of upcoming new webinars will be available from within the Members Only area, and a valid ISAAC member ID number will need to be entered at time of registration.

It is our hope that many of the people who have benefited from attending or viewing our webinars will become members of ISAAC in order to continue to enjoy this significant membership benefit.

Thank you!
