ASHA requirements

I'm worried about the ASHA requirements consisting of:

-1 biological sciences course 
-1 physical sciences course
-1 social/behavioural sciences course
-1 mathematics course

I have taken a biology course that was pretty general without a lab included.

I will be taking a physics class this coming semester, that basically covers the physics of music.

Since I'm majoring in psychology, I believe that I shouldn't worry about the 'social/behavioural sciences' requirement. 

I have taken 2 statistics classes so far, related to my psychology major.

Do you think that these fulfill such ASHA requirements or not?
Whom should I contact to make sure?

Yes, this is my second post in a row ... And I will surely be posting more =[

The person to contact is your dept. chair or clinical supervisor. They would be able to tell you if the courses provided at your institution are approved by ASHA.
I just remembered you are Canadian. Are you planning on getting your ASHA CCCs or just your CASLPA certificate? If you *are* planning on getting your CCCs you can also call the Action Center at 800-638-8255 or contact them via email at actioncenter@asha.org.

I'm not sure if CASLPA requires the same requirements or not. The chair of your dept. should certainly be able to tell you what's required for Canada. The chair and your advisor can probably tell you about ASHA as well, but it may not be current information.
I agree with the above. Also, a good person to contact would be your academic advisor--he or she should know what you need to be on track to fulfill requirements. Good luck!
I took Physics for my physical science class and I was fine, but I'll echo what everyone else said ... check with an advisor.

Best of luck! :)

"Since I'm majoring in psychology, I believe that I shouldn't worry about the 'social/behavioural sciences' requirement."

I take it you're majoring in psych and then going to grad school for speech? If so, you still have to conform to ASHA requirements to get certified, so I don't think you can just not get that course. There are girls I'm in school with now who have to take a science course because theirs doesn't match the ASHA requirements.

But to echo what everyone has said, you'll need to talk to your advisor.

The other stuff should fulfill your math, physical and biological sciences.

If you are majoring in psychology, you will likely have a number of courses that can satisfy the behavioral/social science requirement.

i also agree with checking with an advisor, but to go one step further, check with advisors from each individual graduate school you're applying to--at least the ones you are most interested in. although some of your classes might fulfill ASHA's requirements, they may not satisfy your graduate school's requirements, in which case they will not allow you to graduate until you've taken what they see fit. check with your undergraduate program also, but i've found that being there are so many graduate programs, your undergrad school won't always be able to provide you the most accurate info. i ran into this problem when applying to graduate schools--i had taken a statistics course under a psychology department, and out of the few schools i was accepted to, one of them required that i had statistics credits out of a sociology department, while the other accepted the course as it was (i ended up choosing to go there.) they won't deny you acceptance, but they'll require you to complete the credits before your anticipated graduation date. hope this helps!
