A few Division 13 affiliates have responded to the “20 Competencies in Dysphagia” that were published in the last newsletter. Most of the responders were concerned about how ASHA would certify dysphagia specialists, based on these competencies, and who the “dysphagia educator” would be. These 20 competencies were developed only as a guide, with the premise that the competencies would be facility-based, with the “dysphagia educator” also being facility-based. Therefore, the tests (written and clinical) would be developed and administered at a given facility as a routine part of staff training and evaluation of competence in dysphagia. Hopefully, these competencies will be incorporated into the Specialty Recognition competencies.
