If you wish to become a practicing clinical SLP, logopede, logopedist, orthophonist, clinical linguist, or neuropsychologist, the type of degree you will likely pursue is governed primarily by the accreditation and/or certification requirements in the country and region where you intend to practice. In some countries (e.g., Argen¬tina, Brazil, India, Malaysia, Israel), the SLP qualifications are blended with quali-fications in audiology, and clinicians are expected to be competent in both profes-sional areas.
In the United States, certification is administered through ASHA. The mini¬mum degree requirement for U.S. SLPs is a master’s degree, typically requir¬ing about 2 years of full-time study in an ASHA-accredited SLP program, after completion of a bachelor’s (undergradu¬ate) degree (during which time certain prerequisite courses are taken). Certifica¬tion also requires passing of the national Praxis examination (Educational Test¬ing Service, 2014) and completion of a 9-month supervised clinical fellowship. Most states within the United States have separate processes required for clinical licensure, as do most provinces in Canada and some states in Australia.
In the United Kingdom, SLPs are qualified to practice through the Royal College of Speech and Language Thera¬pists (RCSLT). After graduation from a program accredited by the Health Profes¬sions Council, they must complete 1 year of supervised clinical practice before being recognized as fully independent and certified clinicians or researchers. Similar requirements are in place in Can¬ada through Speech-Language and Audi¬ology Canada (SAC), in Australia through Speech Pathology Australia (SPA), and in New Zealand through the New Zealand Speech-Language Therapists’ Association (NZSTA). There is a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) for certified SLPs in Australia, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and New Zea¬land that helps to facilitate consideration of applicants from one of these countries wishing to practice in another. To date, the agreement includes only English-speaking countries, although this is may change as interest in the international transport¬ability of credentials increases and as the required components for consideration as a member of the MRA are developed in additional countries.
In most countries other than the United States, an undergraduate degree is currently the entry-level degree for clinical practice in SLP and psychol¬ogy; a move to graduate degree require¬ments is under consideration in many countries. Information about the current requirements for education and clinical certification, licensure, or work permits in the country where you wish to work is typically available on the websites of the national professional association that oversees clinical practice regulations in that country. In some countries, the field of communication sciences and disorders is just beginning, and there is not ye
