You may have seen us mention a thing or two about special collections in previous posts. Special collections gather content on a focused subject area from all of the ASHA Journals, as well as from The ASHA Leader and ASHA Leader Live blog, and present them alongside links to other useful resources from ASHA.
Now, you can find all of our special collections in one place on our new Special Collections landing page. The initial four collections cover the top research and resources from across ASHA in a number of areas. Below, see our summaries of the five current special collections.
COVID-19 and CSD: Perhaps our most pertinent and fastest growing special collection, COVID-19 and CSD encompasses any article in the ASHA Journals that directly deals with the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the latest articles from the ASHA Journals and ASHA Leader Live, we include links to related episodes of the ASHA Voices podcast. We’re publishing new articles about COVID-19 every month, so be sure to check this page regularly!
Resources for Telepractice: As more institutions opt to move back online in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, this special collection remains just as relevant as it was when we first introduced it in response to the outbreak of the pandemic. This page also contains links to an online learning course from the ASHA Store called Efficacy and Innovations in Telepractice as well as evidence maps and information from the ASHA Practice Portal on telepractice.
Interprofessional Education/Interprofessional Practice (IPE/IPP): No matter what path your career has taken as a member of ASHA, working alongside fellow professionals is key to your success—and the success of those you serve. This special collection demonstrates the commitment of the ASHA Journals Program to making the information and resources you need to facilitate IPE/IPP readily accessible. Additional resources include an e-book and a free webinar.
Audiologic and Aural Rehabilitation in Service Members and Veterans: People with a history of military service are at a significant risk for a variety of hearing-related and other co-occurring conditions that can be treated by audiologists or speech-language pathologists. Articles in this special collection focus on central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) as well as tinnitus and traumatic brain injury (TBI), particularly in military service members and veterans. Links to various evidence maps and ASHA Practice Portal topics on all three of these conditions underscore this special collection.
No matter what your area of expertise, we hope that these special collections offer something interesting for you. Be sure to check back to the Special Collections landing page and Context blog regularly for updates on future Special Collections.
