The newly appointed Division 4 Task Force on Continuing Education distributed survey forms at several fluency related presentations at the ASHA San Antonio Convention requesting information from participants on preferred mechanisms for delivering continuing education (CE) activities. A total of 228 survey forms were returned. A summary of responses follows.
Of the 228 individuals responding, a little over half were school-based practitioners, 18% were in academia, and the rest fairly evenly divided between speech and hearing center-type sites and private practitioners. The majority of respondents had 6 or more years in the profession; only 17% had less than 3 years of practice. An especially encouraging finding was that 64% of respondents anticipate pursuing specialty recognition in fluency and fluency disorders, and only 22% indicated they were not interested in specialty recognition. For the portion of respondents that indicated they were not interested in specialty recognition, 98% indicated they wanted additional continuing education activities in the fluency area. Reimbursement patterns for attendance at continuing education activities were explored: 23% indicated they are reimbursed for all expenses; 48% get partial reimbursement; 28% indicated all expenses come out of their own pockets.
