2014 SLP Standards: Key Revisions
 Most program process language has been removed
 Sequencing of courses, program documentation, etc.
 More focus on outcomes
 Reduced procedural language (e.g., how to apply)
 Focused on what applicants should look like rather
than how they were prepared
 Some exceptions to this (e.g. ,Standard IV-A: biological
sciences, physical sciences, statistics, social/behavioral
sciences)
7
2014 SLP Standards –
Recurring Questions
Is physics or chemistry required? What about statistics?
Std. IV-A: The applicant must have demonstrated knowledge of the
biological sciences, physical sciences, statistics, and the
social/behavioral sciences.
Implementation:
 Biological sciences should emphasize content area related to human
or animal sciences…
 Physical sciences should include physics or chemistry
 Social/behavioral sciences should include psychology, sociology,
anthropology, or public health
 A stand-alone course in statistics is required – not research
methodology
NOTE: Where the word “should” appears, CFCC is suggesting optimal
choices, but leaving final decisions in the hands of the programs
8
Guidance for STUDENTS
Question: What should I
take for biological
sciences or social/
behavioral sciences?
Answer: Whatever is
required for your
undergraduate degree that
will satisfy the requirements
at the university where you
plan to obtain your graduate
degree
9
Guidance
Question: Must I take
physics or chemistry?
 NO - If you are assured
acceptance into a program
that does not require physics
or chemistry for physical
sciences
 YES - If you are considering
application to a program
that does require either
physics or chemistry
Question: Must I take a
statistics* course?
 NO - If you are eligible to
apply for certification before
August 31, 2014
 YES - If you are not eligible
to apply for certification
before August 31, 2014
* NOTE: Statistics course
cannot be a Methodology
course
10
Guidance
What is meant by direct
supervision in ‘real time’?
 Supervision should be
considered to have
happened in ‘real time’ if it
occurred at the actual time
during which a process or
event occurs. The two events
are synchronous/
simultaneous.
 ‘real time’ and ‘onsite’ are
separate constructs
11
Guidance
What is meant by ‘direct client contact’?
 Only direct contact with the client or the client's family in assessment,
intervention, and/or counseling can be counted toward practicum
 Paperwork, programming, meetings, preparation, reporting are
excluded
12
Deadlines
 September 1, 2013 - ASHA
began accepting
applications under the new
2014 Standards
 August 31, 2014 – Last day
for applicants to apply
under 2005 Standards
13
Deadlines (cont’d)
 Students who graduate from May - August 2014
may apply under 2005 standards if they submit
their application before August 31, 2014;
otherwise, will have to apply under 2014 Standards
 If individuals do not apply until after the Clinical
Fellowship, will have to apply under the 2014
Standards
14
Policy Change
 Between now and September 1, graduates from
unaccredited programs may apply for certification
only if the program was awarded candidacy or
accreditation status within 18 months following
the individual’s graduation date
 As of September 1, 2014, individuals who did not
graduate from a CAA-accredited or Candidate

certification, even if program became accredited at
a later date
