Back to School: Key Facts for Families New to Speech and Language Services

As children across the country return to classrooms, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is offering families information about speech and language services in the schools.

Annually, more than 1 million students ages 3 to 21 receive special education services for speech and language disorders through public schools. These students usually work with speech-language pathologists (SLPs)—professionals who help people of all ages with communication and swallowing disorders.

“Gaining an understanding of how the special education process works can seem overwhelming, but this information can help families learn how schools can best meet their child’s unique needs—working together with parents and caregivers,” said ASHA President Judy Rich, EdD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL. “Speech-language pathology services can allow students to realize their full academic potential and be confident

Academic Decline Could be a Sign of Hearing Loss

As children across the U.S. prepare to get back to school, the American Academy of Audiology recommends that parents and teachers pay close attention to children’s hearing ability.

The total number of children with some type of hearing loss is unknown and many cases may go undiag

Although COVID-19 booster vaccinations in adults elicit high levels of neutralizing antibodies against the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2, antibody levels decrease substantially within 3 months, according to new clinical trial data. The findings, published today in Cell Reports Medicine, are from a study sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health. The trial was led by NIAID’s Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Consortium.

As part of a “mix and match” clinical trial, investigators administered COVID-19 booster vaccines to adults in the United States who had previously received a primary COVID-19 vaccination series under Emergency Use Authorization. Some participants received the same vaccine as their primary series, and others received a different vaccine. Investigators then evaluated immune responses over t

Largest International Effort to Improve Mental Health and Wellbeing of Health Professionals and Patient Safety

Magnet4Europe, a 4 million Euro project funded by the European Commission, is the largest international implementation science project ever attempted to fundamentally change hospital work environments to improve clinician and patient wellbeing.

The project, involving a randomized trial in 130 hospitals in 7 countries, has prevailed over the pandemic.
