Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology (MA)
Supervision Requirements for Clinical Practicum Courses
For each credit hour of ASLS 583, ASLS 585, ASLS 586, or ASLS 588, for which the student is registered, he/she must complete a minimum of 25 hours of therapy. At least 25 percent of these treatment sessions must be supervised by a speech-language pathologist who holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP). For example, if a student is registered for 1 credit hour of ASLS 585, he/she must complete 25 hours of therapy and 6.25 hours of that therapy must be supervised. The student and his/her supervisor have some latitude in choosing which cases or blocks of therapy time are selected for this class.
For each credit hour of ASLS 569, Advanced Diagnostic Procedures, for which the student is registered, he/she must complete a minimum of two speech-language evaluations. A least 50 percent of each assessment session must be supervised.
The above notes are general guidelines. There may be semesters in which these requirements are modified so that the student meets ASHA's requirements for practicum experiences during the graduate program. Students will be provided with more specific information regarding supervision requirements during the initial semester of the program and In clinic practicum courses.
