As an adjunct to our efforts to establish basic clinical competency guidelines for dysphagia clinicians, a task force is being formed to develop a written assessment tool that will measure an individual's working knowledge of dysphagia evaluation and treatment. Our goal is to provide speech-language pathology departments in clinical and educational settings with a tool that assists them in measuring the competencies and readiness of their staffs in the area of dysphagia management. We welcome any Division 13 affiliates who are interested in joining the task force to contact Bonnie Martin within the next month. She also welcomes any comments from members regarding the proposed content of the assessment tool. Integrating affiliate input is a goal of the Steering Committee's initiatives, and this effort is no exception.
