Welcome to the second issue of Perspectives for 2006. I am writing my column having recently returned from Jerusalem where I completed 15 supervisory site visits for students enrolled in externships. As some of you may know, I am the program director for Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders at Nova Southeastern University.
Although coursework for this group is delivered online, students earn clinical hours in three different placements providing opportunities with children and adults with a variety of communication disorders. The on-site supervisors are ASHA certified and have 6 hours of supervisory training provided on CDs prior to working with the students. Most of the students are Americans who have moved to Israel for an extended period. All are women, and their husbands are involved in religious study in Jerusalem. Placements were a bit tricky because many clinicians in Israel are not ASHA certified. Some are Americans who have elected not to maintain their CCCs, and others are Israelis who have not practiced—or do not plan to practice—in America. At the present time, the students are placed in Gans (pre-school through prefirst), a hospital, a nursing home, a rehabilitation facility, and Milabevs (adult day care centers).
