One of the components of the WSHA awarded ASHA Pathways to Excellence Grant is the creation of the IContribute Campaign.  WSHA, in collaboration with the ASHA State Education Advocacy Leaders (SEAL) Champions and SEALs, are creating and providing resources to communicate the value of school-based SLPs.  The ASHA SEAL “I Contribute” Campaign is designed to inform and educate stakeholders and administrators about the contributions of school SLPs related to student achievement, the value of their preparation, training and certification and increase their involvement in advocacy efforts.

The ASHA Speech-Language Pathology School Issues Advisory Board, SEAL Champions and SEALs would like to invite every school-based SLP to participate in the “I Contribute” Challenge and a Call to Action!

The Challenge:
To promote school-based SLPs’ valuable contributions to student achievement college, and career readiness!


A Call to Action to meet the Challenge:
Think about and answer these questions:

-How do I contribute to student achievement, college and career readiness?
-Am I really doing things that will help students master the standards?
-Do the goals and objectives on which I am working relate to language underpinnings of curriculum standards?
-Can I document or demonstrate that the work I am doing really is making a difference academically?
-Who should hear my message on how you contribute?


Focus on your setting:
-Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle School, High School, Special Population, Supervisor, Administrator, Other
-Think of one way you make a valuable contribution in your setting:
-Think about in what way, what means, what method, or in what manner you contribute
-Write it down
-Share your message.

The Challenge… It’s ON! 
Wisconsin has the unique opportunity to develop a tool kit to be used as a model nationwide as part of our recent ASHA grant. WSHA is currently seeking members in each of the CESA regions to assist in these efforts. Thanks to those who have already volunteered. If you are still interested, please email me at A conference call will be scheduled in the near future.
