Even today, in our techno savvy world, many of us would prefer to meet and conquer our clinical challenges without the use of technology. Technology has been viewed as one more hurdle to jump, one more hoop to pass through for many professionals in our field. There are times many professionals feel totally defeated by technology. There are other times, however, when technology has become our knight in shining armor.
When ASHA established new standards for the knowledge and skills required for an entry-level speech-language pathologist, institutions educating students to become speech-language pathologists were called upon to develop and implement a recording system. The design of this system had to include the capacity for effectively documenting a student’s acquisition of the knowledge and skills set forth by ASHA. This recording or tracking system will be reviewed by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) for accreditation/re-accreditation purposes. According to CAA, the system may take the form of the Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA) summary form developed by the Council For Clinical Certification (CFCC).
