Oakland Public School Speech-Language Specialists hold Masters Degrees from accredited universities. Each clinician is certified
by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and each clinician holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC).
Certificate requirements include a master's degree,a nine-month clinical fellowship, and successful completion of a national
examination. In New Jersey, clinicians must also be licensed to practice. The Certificate of Clinical Competence must be renewed
annually and licenses maintained biennially. In order to maintain our qualifications, we must abide by ASHA's Code of Ethics and
obtain continuing education credits by attending seminars, conferences and classes.
