Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Interstate Compact (ASLP-IC)
ASLP-IC is an occupational licensure compact that:
- Addresses increased demand to provide/receive audiology and speech-language pathology services.
- Authorizes both telehealth and in-person practice across state lines in ASLP-IC states.
- Is similar in form and function to occupational licensure compacts for nursing, psychology, medicine, physical therapy and emergency medical services.
ASLP-IC is operational when 10 states enact the legislation for the compact.
- Audiologists and speech-language pathologists licensed in their home state apply for a privilege to practice under the ASLP-IC. State lines are a barrier no more!
- ASLP-IC states communicate and exchange information including verification of licensure and disciplinary sanctions.
- ASLP-IC states retain the ability to regulate practice in their states.
Increasing access to client, patient and student care.
Facilitating continuity of care when clients, patients, and students relocate, travel.
Certifying that audiologists and speech-language pathologists have met acceptable standards of practice.
Promoting cooperation between ASLP-IC states in the areas of licensure and regulation.
Offering a higher degree of consumer protection across state lines.
- Allowing licensed audiologists and speech-language pathologists to practice face to face or through telehealth across state lines without having to become licensed in additional ASLP-IC states.
- Permitting audiologists and speech-language pathologists to provide services to populations currently underserved or geographically isolated.
- Allowing military personnel and spouses to more easily maintain their profession when relocating.
