The Specialty Board on Fluency Disorders has been working to streamline the specialty recognition process and raise awareness of the specialty. It has been a busy year in both areas.
At its recent annual meeting, the Board voted to eliminate the written examination administered to candidates as the final step in the specialty recognition process. If the Board were to continue using the exam, it would need to be updated in the near future at significant expense. To date, everyone who has taken the test has passed it, so the discriminative value of the exam is questionable. When the Board approves a portfolio, we consider the candidate fully qualified as a Board Recognized Specialist and believe no further screening is necessary.
