12. ASHA Standards for Clinical Collaboration

With reference to descriptions of official ASHA CAA and CFFA standards plus scope of practice guidelines, a composite description of collaboration standards is presented here.


Collaboration refers to a skill reflecting “interaction and personal qualities.” It is a skill similar to “prevention, treatment, documentation, diagnosis, referral, counseling, ethical practice, and professional behavior.”

Accredited colleges and universities must provide educational opportunities for certification students to acquire collaboration skills, two in particular:

1. planning intervention with parents and clients.
2. case management with other professionals.
