The information below is collected from state regulatory agencies responsible for regulating school based speech-language pathologists and/or audiologists. The information is reviewed on an annual basis. Please be advised that laws, regulations, and policies may change at any time, so always check with your state for the most up-to-date information.
Audiologists and speech-language pathologists in the public schools are contract employees and do not fall under specific teacher requirements of the State Department of Education. State licensure by the Maryland Board of Audiologists, Hearing Aid Dispensers & Speech-Language Pathologists is typically required for practice in the schools. Contact the board for additional information.
