ASummary of Candidate Core Competencies1

Publication Details

NOTE: ALL signifies every provider in a particular category. See Table 1 in the main report (page 19) for definitions of acronyms.



This table presents candidate core competencies discussed by one or more workshop participants. During the workshop, all participants engaged in active discussions of candidate competencies. In some cases, participants expressed differing opinions about whether a particular competency could be useful and included in the list. However, because this is a summary of workshop comments and not meant to provide consensus recommendations, workshop rapporteurs endeavored to include all candidate core competencies discussed by workshop participants across providers and disorders. This table and its content should be attributed to the rapporteurs of this summary as informed by the workshop.
