The Board interprets the word "supervision" used in G.S. 90-295(3) to require that the supervision must be performed by a person who holds either a valid license under this Article or a Certificate of Clinical Competence of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, in the area for which supervised credit is sought, who must be physically present in the same facility and accessible to the student during the performance of the practicum.  As a minimum standard of supervision, clinical supervisors of students in practicum must directly observe at least 50 percent of each evaluation session, including screening and identification activities, and at least 25 percent of each student's total contact time with each client.
