Topics On Supervision For Speech-Language Pathologists – Part 1 And 2 #e214

Presenter: Cassie Quinn, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S

Fulfill Your ASHA Mentoring and Supervisory Course Requirements.


"The entire course was helpful as a new clinician transitioning to the supervisor role to better understand what I can do to best support the student. I think the information was thorough but remained concise."

– L.B., prior course participant

This course is also available as part of a larger 10.5 hour program, course #e219.

This 2-hour course contains modules 1 and 2. Module 1 will discuss the dynamic nature of the supervisor-student relationship. By reviewing evidence-based research on supervision, we discovered that students’ perceptions of their roles as supervisees can impact their level of self-efficacy and the working alliances they form with their supervisors.

Module 2 will discuss the importance of individualizing styles and levels of supervision, and provide evidence-based research and suggestions for how to individualize your approach to supervision for each student. We will expand on what we’ve learned about the expectations and responsibilities of supervisors and student clinicians by reviewing some of the key components of Jean Anderson’s seminal work on supervision in Speech-Language Pathology.

Course is offered for 0.2 ASHA CEUs – 2 Contact Hours.

"Anderson's model was very helpful in shaping my expectations for supervising future students.  I like the visuals and access to resources."  C.W. (May 2022)

"I wish all this had been available when I was a younger clinician as I have had so many students and CFYs. However I am thrilled to see all this being presented. This information, suggestions and rating scales are great. The suggestions for identifying early on the self evaluations of expectations and skills so discrepancies can get out of the way and student and supervisor can have a good rapport and working relationship." S.L. (Dec. 2021)

"I found the case studies informative and some of the rating scales and questionnaires brought my attention to areas I wasn't aware of. It was well priced and the handouts were all made available beforehand." A.M. (Dec. 2021)

"Bartlett's Supervisory Action Plan. I find it fairly easy and interesting to supervise bright, motivated, self-directed students, but it's also good to have tools to use when things aren't going as expected or desired. Like that fact that collaboration and looking at each person's actions are structured into the design. The course offered good tools to use in specific situations with students and clinical fellows." K.M. (Dec. 2021)

"The course was a good reminder of the Continuum and the need to adjust supervision according to the current level that the student is at. The handouts will be useful tools in maintaining clear communication between the Student and Supervisor.  The course was sufficiently detailed, but not too time consuming." S.F. (Nov. 2021)

"I am currently not practicing, but I have had supervisory experience in the past. This course helped me to reflect on this experience and may be helpful if I should decide to rejoin the workforce.  I liked the handout on ASHA's Self-Assessment of Competencies in Supervision." L.T. (Nov. 2021)

"The options for supervisor and supervise to answer questions and discuss their answers in order to organize goals together."  S.S. (Oct. 2021)

"The rating scales are great to help me to be aware of my expectations as well as to see where my student's expectations lie. The handouts are great and a great reference source as well."  K.B. (Oct. 2021)

"I am pretty good at creating good relationships with students, adapting to their level of clinical expertise and experience, teaching and listening, while prioritizing pt safety in a medical field. But I have not thought a lot about consciously and collaboratively identifying roles and expectations.  E.S. (Aug. 2021)

"I liked learning about Anderson's Continuum Model of Supervision.  I like how the course allowed you to apply your own thoughts about the supervisory process through rating scales, questionnaires, etc." M.D.(Aug. 2021)

"Identifying the most important factors in building self-efficacy is helpful for my daily practice." J.R. (Aug. 2021)

“This course was very informative and eye-opening.” V.F. (Mar. 2021)

“This course provided a lot of information regarding how to adapt your style of teaching to different learners.” A.B. (Feb. 2021)

“I liked the need to identify and communicate about perceptions, expectations, and needs as well as the tools to highlight where there may be differences. Anderson's Continuum was particularly helpful.” L.C. (Jan. 2021)

“I felt the most beneficial portions of this session were the rating scales. They helped me gain a better understanding of my current supervision skills and areas I can improve in. They also provided me with valuable resources that I can use in the future as a supervisor to gain a better understanding of what the student needs from their supervisor.” J.D. (Dec. 2020)
