ASHA convention statistics

I have been a committee co-chair for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention this year. I have just learned that there were a total of 3012 papers submitted for consideration and 2601 have been accepted for presentation (1573 of the accepted presentations are posters).  Congratulations to the following students who have had their papers accepted:

  • Sarah Masso (Charles Sturt University) - Masso, S., McLeod, S., Baker, E. & McCormack, J.  Assessment and analysis of polysyllables in children with speech sound disorders.
  • Megan McDonald (University of Cincinnati) - McDonald, M., Washington, K. N., McLeod, S., Crowe, K., Devonish, H. Validation of the intelligibility in context scale as a subjective measure for Jamaican creole-speaking preschoolers.
