The Birth of Our Professional Home

As our Academy reached its 30th birthday in 2018 and our 30th annual conference just this past March (2019), it may be instructive to the younger members to recount the events leading to the founding of our professional home. It all began at the 1987 convention of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in New Orleans. Before this event, the professional home of all audiologists in the United States was ASHA.
