What’s the state of the professional pipeline in communication sciences and disorders? Academic programs will have the opportunity to help answer that question when the 2016 Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) Education Survey opens Aug. 9.
In response to feedback from many academic programs, the annual survey opens earlier than in previous years, and remains open through Oct. 31. The earlier launch gives programs an opportunity to complete the survey before the new academic year begins.
More than 300 academic institutions offering undergraduate through PhD programs in CSD will be invited to provide key data on CSD education, including information on number of applications, admissions, enrollees and graduates; program capacity; time to degree; and graduates’ first employment. In 2015, 92 percent of approached institutions provided this valuable data by completing the survey.
Programs that complete the survey will have their profile information featured in EdFind, ASHA’s online interface where students can search for and learn about academic programs in CSD. EdFind—which consistently ranks as one of the most visited pages on the ASHA website—is most often viewed on mobile devices.
The data are compiled into national and state aggregate reports, which present a global view of the pipeline to the professions. Many CSD professionals use the reports to supplement grant applications, inform academic programming decisions, and compare program data across degree types, states and other variables.
