Mission

We empower and advocate for our members through the introduction of state legislation, policy change, and high-level conversations geared toward improving our professional lives, which in turn impacts our personal lives.

Committee Objectives 2022-2023

Objective 1: To create and disseminate a workload, caseload, and service delivery models survey to school-based SLPs in Idaho that identifies barriers in which ISHA can help SLPs solve.

Objective 2: Based on survey data, create a 1-day hybrid CEU event on workload, service delivery models, and treatment intensity for school-based SLPs

Objective 3: Provide SLP supports for supervising SLPAs in our current situation which includes a wide range of SLPA training and experience (ranging from no experience- ASHA certified SLPAs)
