    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.
