The Cognitive Speech-Language Inventory (C.S-L.I) is designed to assess cognitive-communication skills and speech-language abilities. This tool can be used to help rapidly plug-in client data into current medical information systems. Speech-language therapists and professionals may use this assessment tool in its entirety or complete subsections based on client abilities and cognitive-communication needs. This assessment may guide professionals in identifying need for further testing within specific domains or may be used independently to generate real-world functional goals for speech therapy. Although this evaluation was generated and has been tested by medical SLPs in sub-acute rehabilitation and skilled nursing settings, no standardized data has been collected.
A speech-language pathology clinical fellowship (CF) serves as a transitional professional experience following graduate school. Successful completion is required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to obtain a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in Speech-Language Pathology. In addition to ASHA requirements, most states also require a clinical fellowship to obtain state licensure. Without the underlying knowledge and resources, the transition into a medical setting can be difficult.
This bundle was created as an educational guide to support new and experienced clinicians, as well as, offer functional intervention tools. This resource includes educational information on basic procedures and documentation, billing and coding, no-prep handouts and inservice templates, a comprehensive goal bank, functional therapy ideas, and much more. The included treatment activities simulate real-life skills and can be used to target functional relevant goals.
