Members of ASHA Special Interest Group 5, Speech Science and Orofacial Disorders, were invited to moderate the speech-language pathology discipline forum at the Annual Meeting of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA) in Indianapolis, IN, on March 26, 2014. The forum was attended by more than 100 speech-language pathologists (SLPs) attending the ACPA conference focused on cleft palate and craniofacial anomalies. A lively discussion of current issues relevant to Special Interest Group (SIG) 5 were discussed, with emphasis on the need for education at the graduate level of basic anatomy/physiology and the relationship to speech production in individuals with cleft palate and craniofacial disorders; a core curriculum to be developed for use by graduate programs who do not have faculty expertise in cleft/craniofacial anomalies; and continuing education for practicing clinicians. While this was an ACPA forum, the Coordinating Committee of SIG 5 will also be working to address these issues. This month's SIG 5 Perspectives includes two papers relevant to these needs and the Coordinating Committee is actively working on the development of new ASHA convention courses.
