What are the basic requirements to become and maintain BCS-F status?

In order to become a BCS-F specialist, a speech-language pathologist must meet a series of standards prior to application, including a specified number of contact hours with clients of all ages and accrual of a substantial number of continuing education hours in fluency, fluency disorders, and related topics. Once an application is approved, a candidate completes a comprehensive portfolio of case studies for approval by the American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders. Certification is maintained by ongoing continued education and clinical activity.

Why do we need Specialty Certification in Fluency and Fluency Disorders?

BCS-F specialists use their advanced training and expertise in order to provide the highest standard of care for people with fluency disorders.
