ASHA Sig 13 Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders' coordinating committee asked that the ASHA Advisory Council consider sharing and disseminating the "Dysphagia Competency Verification Tool (DCVT)" and User's Guide to NSSLHA students and members in our respective states and territories.  Here is an explanation of the DCVT for us to use:


"Dysphagia Competency Verification Tool (DCVT)" is a resource for clinicians to use for self-assessment and for employers, supervisors, or preceptors to use as a tool for evaluating and documenting dysphagia knowledge and skill competencies. It is available for download from ASHA's Practice Portal, Tools and Templates. This tool was developed by Special Interest Group 13, Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia) and the American Board of Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (AB-SSD) Joint Committee on Dysphagia Competencies in response to affiliates' request for guidance for establishing and measuring clinical competence in the areas of feeding, swallowing, and swallowing disorders.
