Resources for Developing CE Courses in Supervision

The need for audiologists and speech-language pathologists to add supervision expertise to their skill set is growing. In response, the ASHA Ad Hoc Committee on Supervision Training issued a comprehensive report [PDF] that includes the skills and knowledge needed by supervisors of  five different constituent groups: clinical educators of graduate students, preceptors of audiology interns, mentors of clinical fellows, supervisors of support personnel, and supervisors of professionals transitioning to a new area of practice or those reentering the professions.

Developing supervision courses using the resources referenced below plus additional resources from ASHA's Clinical Education and Supervision portal may attract a broad, new audience for your organization's continuing education program.

  1. Topics for Supervision Training * [PDF] – This document details the topic areas, knowledge, and skills applicable to each of the five constituent groups. It is also a resource for developing supervision-focused continuing education.
  2. Self-Assessment of Competencies in Supervision * [PDF] – The self-assessment evaluates current knowledge and skills in supervision and helps determine what additional training is necessary for current and future supervisors.
  3. Graphic for Supervision Training * [PDF] – This word cloud graphic represents the most common words and topics related to supervision and supervision training. Consider placing it in marketing materials for your supervision courses.
