Featured Question

What is ASHA’s stance on whether an SLP employed in a school-based setting can also provide services to one of the students on his/her caseload as a private practitioner?

According to the Issues in Ethics statement, “Obtaining Clients for Private Practice from Primary Place of Employment,” it is possible for practitioners to accept cases for private practice from primary place of employment if the following guidelines are observed:

  1. Persons served professionally must be informed of services available from the primary employment setting and private practice, and given the freedom to choose whether and from whom they will obtain services.
  2. Costs associated with provision of services from the two settings are shared.
  3. Practitioners have informed school administrators from their primary work setting of their intent to provide private speech-language services.

For a summary of this response and answers to other school-based practice questions, see the Schools Services FAQs.
