How Do You Count Success?

by Lisa Yauch-Cadden, MS CCC-SLP

Here at ASHA 2013, I am not standing on my soapbox, I am standing on a mountain peak. The journey to get here started when 2 friends began chatting about work, needing an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on. That conversation grew into a website, a Facebook page and a Twitter feed. Now we have 1000 friends who can share ideas, frustrations, successes and be an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on.

The climb up this mountain was not easy, but we persevered. We have much more to do, but the view is awesome and we can’t wait to see what awaits us. We invite all of our colleagues to join us in a conversation about our favorite subject: Communication disorders. Nothing is off limits, because there are no limits when we work together. Welcome to Join us as we continue our climb.
