CE Credit: 2 Hours

Target Audience: Speech-Language Pathology CEUs

Course Abstract

Clinical Supervision for Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Audiologists is a 2-hour online continuing education (CE) course that presents research on best practices in supervision as required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in 2020.

We will take a brief look at different models of supervision including the Supervision, Questioning and Feedback (SQF) Model of Clinical Teaching, the Cognitive Apprenticeship Instructional Model, Geller’s Integrative Model, and Anderson’s Continuum of Supervision as we discuss the clinical educator’s / instructor’s role in the supervisory process and the skills required to supervise effectively.

Topics presented include the mandatory content required by ASHA Certification and will address deliberate practice, giving feedback, self-assessment, ethics, social media, the use of technology in supervision and telepractice, diversity awareness, and the accommodation of persons with disabilities.

The ASHA supervisory topic list is much too extensive to cover every aspect in detail. This course is an overview, which can lead the audiologist or speech-language pathologist to identify areas for deeper study.
