For the 25 hours of observation, am I allowed to observe a Clinical fellow conducting a session that was supervised by an SLP?

I think you are okay!

Your question really made me think! I am assuming you are an undergraduate student. If this is the case, I would double check with your specific program. I did look through ASHA and didn't find any specific information on it.

However, I thought back to my undergraduate days, and I did observe a CFY and those hours did count towards my observation hours.

My gut feeling is you are okay!

Hope that helps,
