Allen, Wendel C.; And Others
The document delineates competencies for certification in the state of Washington for a Communication Disorders Specialist, who provides diagnostic (evaluative), therapeutic (habilitative), and consultative services for individuals handicapped by disorders of language, speech, and/or hearing. The guidelines and standards establish a framework for determining objectives of preparation, delineate competencies in subject matter specialities, pedagogy, and personal characteristics, and specify entry and exit-level competencies for each stage of preparation (preparatory, initial, and continuing). Ten areas of clinical competency are covered. The definition provided of public school speech, language, and hearing services is intended to analyze the clinician's role in behavioral terms. Analysis is broken down into specific behaviors under the ten sub-roles or areas of competency. Listed are tasks required for competency at each performance criterion level and methods of preparation. (KW)
