ASHA's State Education Advocacy Leaders (SEALs)
State Education Advocacy Leaders (SEALs) are appointed by ASHA recognized state speech-language hearing associations to advocate on education issues. These issues may include caseload/workload, salary supplements, and maintenance of personnel standards in school settings. SEALs can be speech-language pathologists or audiologists. SEALs can be audiologists or speech-language pathologists (SLPs). The mission of the SEALs network is to enhance and perpetuate the advocacy, leadership, and clinical management skills of school-based ASHA members at the state and local levels to influence administrative and public policy decisions that affect the delivery of speech-language pathology and audiology services in school settings.
Do you have an education issue in your state that needs to be addressed? Email your state’s SEAL your concerns. Indiana’s SEAL is Keegan Koehlinger-Wolf (SLP). She can reached at email@example.com
