Welcome to the Oregon Speech-Language & Hearing Association!

The Oregon Speech-Language & Hearing Association is dedicated to providing the highest level of communication potential to people of all ages.

We are saddened to share about the passing of our 2017 OSHA President, Kathy Knipps de Domingo. We have lost a great leader in our profession who tirelessly advocated for the interests of providers and patients, who was a mentor to many, and who represented our profession worldwide through her work with CARF. Our thoughts go out to her family in this difficult time. May you rest in peace Kathy.

In lieu of flowers, Kathy's wish was for donations to be made to the American Brain Tumor Association.  OSHA will be collecting donations for the Sunshine Fund through the month of May and sending a donation in honor of Kathy in June.  If you would like to contribute to the Sunshine Fund donation, please send checks to OSHA C/O Sunshine Fund for Kathy, 1284 Court St NE Salem, OR 97301.

Making Connections is a glimpse into the very broad and diverse world of speech-language pathology and audiology through the profiles of Oregon clinicians in different practice settings. 

We wanted to show how speech-language pathologists and audiologists build relationships with their patients, clients, and students, so they can effectively help people with communication and swallowing needs connect with the important people in their lives.

Many thanks to filmmaker Kai Tillman, project manager Phaedra Urban, and the clinicians and participants who volunteered their time and their personal stories.

Making Connections was made possible by a grant from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA).

Advocacy for Reasonable Workloads and Caseloads for School-Based SLPs

OSHA has produced a letter, available at the link below, that will be sent to special education directors in Oregon, advocating for reasonable caseloads and workloads for SLPs. We urge directors who plan, budget and hire for SLP coverage in their districts to take into account the improved student outcomes that result from appropriate caseload size.

 If you are a school-based SLP who is in need of a more reasonable caseload, please feel free to share this letter, along with the evidence-based informational graphs, with your colleagues, union representatives or administrators.
