About ASHA Standards Changes: 2014, 2007 and 2005

 

2014:  Effective September 1, 2014

Applicants for ASHA CCC-SLP must have completed a course in statistics as offered in a math or psychology program curriculum.  The course may have been taken in a community or in a four-year college, as long as it was transferable to the CSU, as well as taken at CSUN.  In order for the department to review and sign an ASHA membership and certification application for a program graduate in time for this change in standards, individuals who are applying under the older standards must submit their completed application to the department office no later than July 1, 2014. 

 

2007: Changes in ASHA's Audiology Professional Certification Standards

Beginning January 1, 2007, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) changed its certification standards for Audiologists.

These changes will be effective for any student applying for ASHA’s Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) after December 31, 2006. Students who have finished the Master’s degree and applied to ASHA prior to December 31, 2006, will be held to the requirements of the new standards.

Provisions of the ASHA CCC-A will require possession of an earned doctorate in Audiology or closely related area. Other changes mandate a full calendar year of the Clinical Fellowship in conjunction with the doctoral program. Any Department graduate who wished to apply for the ASHA CCC in Audiology under the pre-2007 standards must have submitted the application forms for Department review and approval by November 1, 2006. Any applications submitted after that date were held by the Department until January 30, 2007 and reviewed under the new, post-2007 certification standards.

Note that the academic program in Audiology will no longer have its accreditation from the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

ASHA may or may not elect to accept an application for certification by holders with the Master’s degree as the highest degree earned. Also, ASHA may or may not elect to accept an application even after consultation with the Department. The new ASHA CCC standards for Audiology include mandated submission of the extensive Knowledge and Skills Analysis form.

2005 Changes in ASHA’s Speech-Language Pathology Professional Certification Standards: Do They Affect You?

Beginning January 1, 2005, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) changed its certification standards for Speech-Language Pathologists. These changes became effective for any student who applies for ASHA’s Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) after December 31, 2005.

Certain portions of the application for ASHA CCC in Speech-Language Pathology must be reviewed and approved by the academic department from which the graduate degree has been received before the full application can be sent to ASHA.

See your faculty advisor for details if you are unclear about which standards apply to you.

The new ASHA CCC standards for Speech-Language Pathology include additional coursework in basic science and additional clinical practica. Also, the new requirements mandate submission of the extensive Knowledge and Skills Analysis form.
