2020 ANCDS Fellowship Award Recipients

The ANCDS Student Fellowship Program was developed in 2011.  Start-up funds for the original awards were contributed by Dr. Lawrence Shriberg, keynote speaker for the 2010 ANCDS Annual Scientific Meeting, who donated his honorarium back to the ANCDS.  Funds to sustain the program continue to be provided by the ANCDS Executive Board and through donations from ANCDS members.

Over the last three years, the ANCDS Certification Board has engaged in a range of activities to encourage SLPs to apply for board certification. These activities have included poster sessions and talks at state and national conventions, podcasts, and various forms of personal outreach.  One of the things that became evident from these different attempts was that many SLPs were aware that ANCDS offered board certification and aspired to such recognition of their clinical expertise, but they lacked the confidence that they could complete the process successfully. Most SLPs have never submitted a written or oral case study that would be subjected to peer review.
