This is a very exciting time for Division 14, a time of growth and development. In {ukJune 2003}, the Steering Committee (SC) met at ASHA headquarters to develop the Division's first strategic plan. I provided a report on the plan with names of committees, committee chairs, and committee objectives in the {ukNovember 2003} issue of Perspectives. The ASHA Convention was also a productive time for the Division. We had an affiliate meeting that generated a lot of good discussion and allowed us to recruit some new affiliates. The SC updated the strategic plan, and the Division sponsored a well-attended Short Course on “Multicultural Literacy Issues across the Lifespan” and an invited session on “Neural Correlates of Bilingualism.” SC members also spoke before ASHA's Legislative Council in support of the document Knowledge and Skills Needed by Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists to Provide Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services. The Council affirmed it with little dissent. This document, developed by the Multicultural Issues Board, outlines the knowledge and skills that speech, language, and hearing professionals should possess in order to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to clients and patients. The Division has achieved another milestone with this issue of Perspectives. Division 14 is the latest Special Interest Division to become an ASHA continuing education provider. This is the first issue of Perspectives to be offered to Division 14 affiliates as a self-study product. Only affiilates are eligible to earn CEUs by completing the questions that accompany this issue and submitting the answers to the Division 14 CE Administrator. Forms and instructions are attached at the back of this issue.
