The American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders is pleased to announce Erin O'Brien Wilson has been accepted as a Board Certified Specialist in Fluency and Fluency Disorders (BCS-F). Board Certified Specialists in Fluency are individuals who hold their Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) awarded by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and have demonstrated a high level of knowledge in clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating individuals with fluency disorders. They are designated as BCS-F.
Board Certified Specialists in Fluency are clinical specialists who work in a variety of settings, including private practice, schools and universities. They provide evaluations and treatment for individuals with fluency disorders, such as stuttering, cluttering or overall disruption in the smooth flow of speech.
The American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders, a not-for-profit organization, develops and implements standards in the ongoing evaluation and recognition of specialists in the clinical practice and research of fluency and fluency disorders. The BCS-F Program is driven by the need to give consumers access to professionals with advanced knowledge and skills, and to educate and recognize expert clinicians.
