Benchmarking the Language Demands of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology

In May 2014, the Board of the Canadian Alliance of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Regulators (CAASPR) unanimously accepted CCLB’s report describing the type, scope and composition of language use in the audiology and speech-language pathology workplaces. The report had two purposes: to inform the identification of existing language tools that can be used to determine the likelihood that internationally educated professionals will be able to handle the communication requirements associated with safe and effective practice in their chosen profession; and to inform a discussion regarding the need to develop a profession-specific language assessment tool. CCLB Senior Program Manager Marianne Kayed and Lead Benchmarker Anne Senior presented the benchmarking results to the CAASPR Board of Directors at their April meeting in Ottawa.
