Preparation of Graduate Students in Speech Pathology and Audiology for Employment in Community Hearing and Speech Agencies.
National Association for Hearing and Speech Action, Silver Spring, MD.; American Speech and Hearing Association, Washington, DC.
Extensive recommendations by workshop participants on the preparation of graduate students in speech pathology and audiology are followed by four resource papers given at the workshop. Recommendations concern provision of services based on total management of communication disorders in hearing and speech centers, general philosophies and principles of training programs, graduate degree programs, relationships between training centers and service agencies, and professional standards and certification. John E. Kralewski then discusses the training of hearing and speech professionals for the future health care system and pays special attention to changes occuring in the health care delivery system such as organizational developments and the American Hospital Association proposed plan. The second paper, by D. C. Spriestersback, examines differing philosophies involved in educational programs for preparation of speech pathologists and audiologists and notes trends toward more emphasis on comprehensive medicine, more interprofessional sharing of responsibilities for management problems, and more flexible admission procedures. Different philosophies of administrative policy are noted briefly by Jack L. Bangs, followed by mention of the data boom, computerization, age extension, linguistics, and punishment by John V. Irwin.
