Welcome to the home page of The State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, the state board that licenses and regulates Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists, including Assistants in Speech-Language Pathology, Assistants in Audiology, Interns in Speech-Language Pathology, and Interns in Audiology.
Deadline for Waiver Application for Certain Lapsed Audiology Licenses is September 1, 2014
The State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (board) has adopted a rule pursuant to Senate Bill 312, which was passed during the Regular Session of the 83rd Texas Legislature, to establish a procedure to issue an audiologist license to a person who submits an application before September 1, 2014, and who: 1) has a master’s degree in audiology; and 2) was licensed as an audiologist in this state between September 1, 2007, and September 1, 2011, and 3) whose license has expired related to a failure to renew the license timely.
All formerly licensed individuals who fall within this category should have received a mail-out in May 2014 from the board which was sent to the last known address on file and included the relevant information and application. The application form is also available on the board’s website at: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/speech/sp_forms.shtm, under Miscellaneous Forms, “Audiology SB 312 Special Renewal Application.”
