This is an online, self-paced course for any school-based speech-language pathologist who is new to supervising speech-language pathology assistants (SLPAs) in Colorado schools or who needs a review. This is not intended for administrators who are evaluating SLPAs for performance review, although administrators are welcome to take the course if you want to learn more about the roles and responsibilities of speech language pathology assistants and the speech –language pathologist supervising them.
This free course meets ASHA’s 2-hour supervision requirement, and 10 CDE contact hours are available.
The course consists of three modules with narrated presentations, articles, and resources to support you in your role as supervisor. There are reflection questions for each article and a quiz at the end of each module that must be passed at 80% in order to receive your contact hours certificate.
This course is designed for SLPs who will be supervising SLPAs for the first time or need a refresher on:
- Understanding supervisory processes, including collaborative models of supervision.
- Roles and responsibilities of supervisors, not performance review evaluators.
- Roles and responsibilities of SLPAs according to Colorado rules and regulations.
- Supervision guidance: roles and responsibilities
- The role of the supervisor and administration
- Teaching and mentorship of SLPA
This course is open year-round, with registrations processed the third week of each month.
You will have 6 months to complete the course at your own pace!
*This course is not intended for administrators who are evaluating SLPAs for performance review.
