SLP Corner: From Supervised to Certified: What to Consider When Applying for Your CCCs
[Source: ASHA Leader Blog]
I knew I’d experience many firsts during my clinical fellowship (CF). At my school placement, I wrote IEPs as the sole service provider. I signed and requested diet upgrades at my position in my local skilled nursing facility. All the while, a mentor helped me with any questions.
Around April, though, I realized I had little direction on how on how to prepare to become a completely independent and certified SLP. Sure, my mentor and I completed typical “sign here, date that” paperwork, but I needed more details about transitioning from supervised to completely certified. The application process went rather smoothly; however, I found the experience somewhat daunting.
