Clinical Specialty Certification (CSC) will be available to ASHA members beginning January 1, 2014. The ASHA Board of Directors approved the transition of the Clinical Specialty Recognition (CSR) program to a Clinical Specialty Certification (CSC) program in 2012 (BOD 19‐2012). The decision to transition the program followed several years of information gathering and consideration of recommendations put forth from multiple committees and study groups that began evaluating the effectiveness of the current grassroots model of clinical specialty recognition as early as 2006.
The purposes of the CSC program remain consistent with those articulated in the original resolution establishing the clinical specialization program (LC 22‐94). That is, the CSC program would provide a mechanism by which (a) the public can identify those practitioners with specialized clinical education and experience and (b) practitioners can specify the nature of the clinical practice they provide (Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Specialty Recognition, 1994).
