And the awards keep coming....

Lynn to be honoured by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
Posted: September 20, 2007

Kansas City (09/20/2007) American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) will present a 2007 Media Award to "For Better or For Worse" cartoonist Lynn Johnston on Friday, Nov. 16, during the Association’s 2007 Convention in Boston.

Johnston is being honored for creating a character in her comic strip afflicted with Aphasia, a disorder that results from damage to the brain’s language center. The condition, which may produce difficulty in speaking, listening, reading or hearing, is often the result of a stroke or traumatic brain injury. In the plotline, based on Johnston’s own family, the grandfather suffers a stroke. Johnston shares with readers the man’s difficulties, as well as those of his caregiver and other family members, as he struggles to regain his speech.


Why do I have a feeling that she'l eventually receive an award for her "Shan...non Stands On A Table And Asks 'Can't We All Respect The Special Needs?'" strips?
