Supervision for School-Based SLPs (PD102332)

Presenter(s): Melanie W. Hudson, MA, CCC-SLP
Course Description

This was one of the most popular courses for SLPs in schools in 2023. See more popular courses for SLPs in schools.

It’s not a matter of “if” but rather “when” the school-based SLP assumes the role of a supervisor. Supervision may include directing the activities of support personnel, helping graduate students connect academic knowledge and clinical procedures, or monitoring the activities of clinical fellows to achieve independence. This recorded session from ASHA’s 2021 Schools Connect online conference explains the key elements of the supervisory process and defines the roles and responsibilities of both the supervisor and the supervisee in the school setting. The speaker discusses relationship development, communication, and the role and influence of supervisory style on supervisee performance and decision-making.

  • Define supervisor and supervisee roles and responsibilities appropriate to the school setting for support personnel, graduate students, and clinical fellows
