- LICENSE INFORMATION
The agency is governed by five board members. The board members are residents of the state and appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate.
The board members consist of three licensed speech-language pathologists or audiologists, provided that at least one of the three shall be a licensed speech-language pathologist and least one a licensed audiologist; one otolaryngologist who is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and one lay member.
The board is established in order to safeguard the public health, safety and welfare, and to protect the public from being misled by incompetent, unscrupulous and unqualified persons, it is necessary to provide regulatory authority over persons offering speech-language pathology and audiology services to the public.
The statement was adopted at the December 7, 2007 board meeting as a result of the Board's concern that use of the term by non audiologists was misleading to the public. The Board's position concurs with the position of the American Academy of Audiology, and the Academy of Doctors of Audiology.
