Beginning January 1, 2014, the Clinical Specialty Recognition (CSR) program will transition to a Clinical Specialty Certification (CSC) program. This process started a number of years ago when I was serving as the Chair of the Specialty Board on Fluency Disorders (SBFD). At that time, the Council for Clinical Specialty Recognition (CCSR), the ASHA committee that currently oversees the four Clinical Specialty Boards until December 31, 2013, was seeking input from the Boards regarding a possible transition to a Certification program. As Chair of the Board, I became the liaison for the SBFD and worked closely with the members of the CCSR. A survey of fluency specialists was conducted during this time and the results helped to construct the requirements that are now part of the new CSC program. I no longer serve on the SBFD and this article does not reflect the views of the current or past Boards. My thoughts pertain only to the Specialty Recognition Program for Fluency Disorders.
