Listed below is a description of the path that is followed by any division that drafts documents (position statements or guidelines) that they want to become official ASHA policy.
A position statement or a guideline document is submitted to the Executive Board (EB) via resolution.
The resolution includes a written explanation of the need for the position statement or guideline, a history of affiliate and membership response(s) to peer review(s), and any budgetary implication.
A guideline document is approved by the Executive Board and does not have to be approved by the Legislative Council.
A position statement, (one page policy statement) and the associated technical report, is submitted to the Executive Board, who submits it to the Committee on Resolutions who makes a decision as to which group needs to approve the position statement, i.e. Audiology/Hearing Science Assembly, Speech-Language Pathology/Speech or Language Science Assembly, or the total Legislative Council. All position statements approved by the Legislative Council or one of its Assemblies are returned to the Executive Board for ratification.
