On the first episode of ASHA Voices, we take a look at the intersection of cognitive-communication disorders (CCDs) and the justice system.
We’ll meet an SLP and a retired police lieutenant working to de-escalate police encounters by teaching young adults with autism how to communicate effectively with police officers.
“[W]e have a full weekend of working with young people to basically talk about their behavior,” says CEO and founder of the L.A. Speech and Language Therapy Center Pamela Wiley.
And, we’ll hear from a Howard University professor who says shares what she’s learned about cognitive-communication disorders and the school-to-prison pipeline. Also, she’ll tell us about the work she does inside prisons and how her students react to the program. This is ASHA Voices.
