Working near Washington DC at the ASHA headquarters

I am an international representative on the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Ad Hoc Committee on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. This week I have been working with the committee at the ASHA headquarters that are located near Washington DC.  The meeting has been very collegial and enthusiastic, generating many plans for resources, presentations, and publications to facilitate ASHA's membership's use of the ICF within speech-language pathology and audiology practice. The day before the meeting I was able to visit the famous places in Washington DC.
