The ASHA Committee on Honors is Pleased to Announce the Following 2007 Award Recipients!

Honors of the Association - ASHA

The Honors of the Association recognizes members in good standing for their distinguished contribution to the field of speech, language, and hearing and, is the highest honor the Association awards. Members are encouraged to nominate individuals who are well-known throughout the nation and the world for a life-time of innovative clinical practice, insightful and rigorous research, creative administration, effective legislative activity, outstanding teaching, or other distinguished professional contributions. Honors of the Association may be awarded to an individual whose contributions have been confined to a single area of professional excellence. Although this award typically is conferred near the end of a professional career, the quality of the achievements and their impact on the professions are considered of greater importance than the length of service.

The status of Fellow is retained for life and is one of the highest honors this professional organization can bestow. It recognizes professional or scientific achievement and is given to a member who has shown outstanding contribution to the professions - contributions that are significant and would be so regarded within and beyond one's community or state. Our professions have thousands of members who fulfill their responsibilities competently and well, but only a small percentage have, by virtue of the quality and amount of their contributions, distinguished themselves sufficiently to warrant recognition by election to Fellow in ASHA.
