making moves

26 Oct

Two things:

1) Today is the FIRST ANNUAL NSSLHA VIRTUAL ADVOCACY DAY!

What the heck does that mean? I’ll tell ya. You may have noticed our economy is a hot mess. As such, Congress is making cuts – including potential cuts to IDEA funding, Medicaid/Medicare, and putting caps on therapy. #yikes

Since NSSLHA and ASHA knows that you SLPs like your clients and you’d like your clients to continue receiving services that don’t cost eleventy-billion dollars, they set up a way for you to take Action!

It seriously takes a few minutes to make sure that your legislators know that we need support. Go to The ASHA Advocacy Page and it will send a letter to your representatives. You can also add a little note and picture.

Do it. For serious.

this is what I look like when I'm taking action

2) I love lists. Obviously. Anyway.

2) Tell me what you think.

This spring I may be giving a presentation at the annual MSHA convention regarding legislative issues and how they affect our professions and patients. I want to know what your concerns are and what you’d like to learn about! Please share. Feel free to privately email me if you don’t want your political thoughts sloshed all over the comments area.
