A common complaint among practitioners is that the journals do not publish enough articles on intervention. The usual response of editors is that few papers are actually written about intervention. In recent years, however, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and ASHA Foundation have devoted considerable efforts to promote intervention research and the discussion of intervention issues. ASHA Foundation, for example, sponsored a conference in March 1989, devoted entirely to treatment efficacy research. A second conference was recently held at Purdue University in May 1991. Proceedings of the first conference, edited by Lesley Olswang, Cynthia Thompson, Steven Warren, and Nancy Minghetti, were published in 1990. Amidst all of her responsibilities editing these proceedings, Olswang agreed to coordinate a clinical forum on treatment efficacy for LSHSS. The three other contributors to the forum, Barbara Bain, Chris Dollaghan, and Tom Campbell, are well known in the field for their clinical research.
