Director of Speech-Language Pathology


Digital environments and electronic communications are part of our daily life – both personally and professionally. We engage them frequently, often without considering the responsibility associated with their use, purpose, and applications. Our personal and professional lives may appear to be separated through the utilization of different accounts and usernames. But one’s (e)dentity is often not anonymous or secluded; and can be potentially damaging. 

This workshop will present the guiding principles of civility essential for practicing clinicians. Introductions to ASHA’s Code and Board of Ethics will be provided. Social media will be discussed with regard to format, purpose and necessity across personal, professional and business-generating venues. Moral and legal aspects of social media with regard to the ASHA Code of Ethics and other agencies will be reviewed via case studies.


Lizbeth Dooley-Zawacki, MS, CCC/L-Sp, BCS-CL is a speech-language pathologist licensed in New York and South Carolina. She was employed for over 25 years as an elementary school-based clinician; and for over 30 years as an adjunct faculty member and clinical supervisor at a regional university. She has taught undergraduate and graduate courses across the communication sciences and disorders curriculum including phonetics, speech sound disorders, language development and SLP services in school settings. She served on ASHA’s Advisory Council, Legislative Council, Council for Academic Accreditation Nominating Committee and the Editorial Review Committee for SIG 16. She recently completed her term of service on ASHA’s Board of Ethics which she chaired in 2020. Lizbeth has completed over 50 presentations on topics related to ethics, child language, RtI, school-based practices, collaborative strategies and clinical techniques for new clinicians.
