The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) clearly defines the role of speech-language pathologists in the area of cognitive-communicative disorders across the lifespan. It is the responsibility of university training programs to provide graduate student clinicians with a wide range of clinical training opportunities that prepare them to enter the profession of speech-language pathology with all the requisite knowledge and skills. Therefore, university programs must be creative in designing training opportunities that fulfill this requirement. This article explores one clinical training approach, a program called Social Hour, that provides graduate student clinicians the opportunity to gain experience addressing cognitive-communicative disorders in a group setting.
