What is the American-Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and what does it mean to be “certified” by them?

 

ASHA is the nation's leading professional, credentialing, and scientific organization for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech/language/hearing scientists.Those who have achieved ASHA certification hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC). The CCC is a nationally recognized professional credential that represents a level of excellence in the field of Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP).Professionals who hold a CCC have voluntarily met rigorous academic and professional standards, typically going beyond the minimum requirements for state licensure. They have the knowledge, skills, and expertise to provide high quality clinical services, and they actively engage in ongoing professional development to keep their certification current.
