The Asian Indian Caucus (AIC) publishes annual e-newsletter called ASHAKIRAN. AshaKiran is designed to be a platform to highlight research and clinical advances as they relate to evidence based clinical service delivery to/by individuals of Asian Indian origin. Each edition of AshaKiran includes the following sections:

  • Spotlight on an Asian-Indian will profile an Asian-Indian professional in a field affiliated to speech, language, and/or hearing.
  • People will feature updates on AIC members, including publications, awards, appointments, and other personal achievements.
  • Voices provides the opportunity for members of the AIC to express opinions, narrate experiences (at a new job, as an Asian-Indian professional, a trip back to the Asian-Indian sub-continent, etc.), respond to articles published in Asha Kiran, or raise issues that they would like AIC to address. Voices is an open forum for comments.
  • Articles provide readers with a broad overview of current developments in research and clinical practice in speech, language, and hearing, particularly as they pertain to service delivery to and by individuals of Asian Indian origin.
  • Clinical Innovations highlights new trends in clinical service delivery that are of particular interest to professionals and clients of Asian-Indian background.
