8. ASHA, Collaboration and Standards

We know the Board of Directors has the authority to insist all graduate students receive training in clinical collaboration. Responsibility for education standards and curriculum is vested in the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA).

Academic programs must provide “opportunities” for students to master areas of knowledge and skill. Thus organized classroom work in clinical collaboration methodology is not required by the Board of Directors. Like counseling, the student can pick up this knowledge as it seen in clinic or perhaps studied for a graduate paper or thesis.
