Update from CFCC and ASHA
The recent survey from the Council for Clinical Certification in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CFCC) soliciting Peer Review feedback related to English-language proficiency has been withdrawn. Upon review of the initial responses, it was clear to the CFCC that much of the survey data is not related specifically to the changes being proposed. This does not change the fact that balancing language proficiency requirements necessary to assure quality service delivery, with ASHA’s commitment to diversifying our professions, remains an issue requiring further consideration. In coming months, additional discussions will determine needed action(s). ASHA member feedback is an essential part of these discussions and will again be solicited prior to the implementation of changes.
We recognize and acknowledge that discussions pertaining to language, culture, and race can be uncomfortable and difficult, but necessary. Regrettably, as matters have unfolded, individual members of the ASHA Ad Hoc Committee on Language Proficiency were subjected to unjust and frankly unacceptable criticism. These volunteer leaders have often been at the forefront of these difficult conversations and have dedicated significant time and energy to furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion. As we proceed, it is our sincere hope that all parties involved will engage civilly and responsibly, with openness, thoughtfulness, and mutual respect, and with a strong commitment to acting constructively. To do otherwise will only inhibit progress that would be for the benefit of all. We firmly believe that the CFCC, ASHA, and ASHA members are up to working together collaboratively and effectively.
