The Specialty Commission on Fluency Disorders held two half-day meetings during the Division 4 Leadership Conference in Charleston. Substantial time at each meeting was devoted to two issues—the development of a specialty examination for applicants who have completed the mentored specialty education and clinical practice program and the increasing likelihood that the number of completed applications received by the June 30 deadline will fail to establish Inaugural Cadres of Fluency Disorders Specialists and Mentors of sufficient size to support the specialty recognition program in fluency disorders.
Following meetings at the ASHA Convention last November, David Shapiro began to contact other health-related professions to gather information and material on their specialty recognition examinations, which he circulated to the rest of us on the Commission. The types of examinations being used and how they were developed varied substantially, but most involved multiple-choice assessments of knowledge. So, one of our primary objectives for the Charleston meetings was to decide on the type(s) of examination that would be needed to assess specialty applicants in fluency disorders and how to develop it.
