Last December, the Specialty Board on Fluency Disorders mailed questionnaires to 290 clinicians who had applied for recognition in Inaugural Cadre of Fluency Specialists and to 230 clinicians who had expressed interest in specialty recognition but did not apply or complete an application.

By mid-February, 54% of the surveys mailed to Inaugural Cadre applicants had been completed and returned to the Board. The largest number of them (39%) identified this Newsletter as their initial source of information about specialty recognition in fluency disorders. Slightly fewer than one-third of them reported applying before June 2000, with about one-fifth of these applying in 1999. Thus, the remaining two-thirds had applied after that date, which is consistent with our data on all completed applications.
