    Today, we would like to highlight work by Dr. Shameka Stanford, PhD, CCC-SLP. Her article Casualties of Misunderstanding: Communication Disorders and Juvenile Injustice highlights critical issues about adolescents with communication disorders and sheds light on the increased risk of being misjudged and detained by the juvenile justice system. Dr. Stanford makes excellent points on the critical advocacy role speech-language pathologists play to help avoid the misunderstanding of adolescents with communication disorders. Thank you, Dr. Stanford for paving the way with social justice issues in our profession. Link to the article and other related resources can be found here:
