The notion of understanding and working to develop supervisory skills that demonstrate understanding of generational differences is identified in the new Knowledge and Skills document for clinical supervision (ASHA, 2008). This article discusses the definition and delineation of the various generations and investigates the perceived differences between the generations. Specifically, the present study will explore how the clinical supervisor's demographics, characteristics, and perceptions may impact how a student's success is measured. Suggestions are offered by the authors on how to communicate supervision goals to students who belong to the Millennial Generation.
