Over 55 years ago a small but mighty group of committed speech-language pathologists and audiologists made the bold decision to form a national professional association to advocate not only for their emerging professions but also for their patients and clients.

While our association has grown and the professions have evolved over the past five decades, our purpose has remained unchanged: to serve, promote and advocate for your profession.
