If you’re reading this article right now, it’s likely that it’s because you received a copy of the latest issue of Perspectives in the mail. In that case, it stands to reason that you are a member of ASHA’s Special Interest Division 4, Fluency and Fluency Disorders. The next logical conclusion one would draw is that you joined this division because you have a special interest in the area of fluency disorders. It does not stand to reason, however, that you are currently a Board Recognized Specialist in Fluency Disorders; you may or may not be. Whether you are or are not a Board Recognized Specialist, I encourage you to read on. If you are not, this article will tell you more about what’s involved in becoming a board recognized specialist, as well as the benefits of going through the process. If you are already a Board Recognized Fluency Specialist, this article will provide you with insight about how you can help others, even in the smallest of ways, who are interested in the process.
