ASHA's Clinical Specialty Board (CSB) is actively encouraging groups of clinicians with a particular specialty to establish Specialty Commissions to enable the public and fellow professionals to identify clinicians who have achieved advanced skills and knowledge in a particular area of clinical practice. Currently, the CSB has approved the Specialty Commission on Fluency. Other areas in advanced stages of the process are Child Language, Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders, and Hearing Conservation and Occupational Audiology. A proposal from Auditory Verbal International for Aural Rehabilitation and Speech/Language with deaf children was withdrawn. The Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology (ARA) has surveyed its members regarding interest in an AR Clinical Specialty and the majority of respondents were in favor of beginning the process. The Executive Board of ARA established a committee to begin the process, but the committee leader (me) has not been actively working on the process.
