The Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology Interstate Compact (ASLP-IC) is an occupational licensure compact which allows professionals to practice in multiple states without having to obtain additional state licenses. The compact addresses increased demand to provide/receive audiology and speech-language pathology services and authorizes in-person and telepractice across state lines.
States participating in the compact communicate and exchange information, including verification of licensure and disciplinary sanctions; however, compact states retain the ability to regulate practice in their state.
Before the compact can issue privileges to practice, the ASLP-IC Commission, which is responsible for ASLP-IC oversight, must create required rules and bylaws and implement a data system between the states. This work is currently ongoing, and the compact is expected to be fully implemented in 2023. For more in-depth information on the ASLP-IC, visit the website. You can also find the status of the compact in your states by viewing the compact map.
