The purpose of the Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is to administer and enforce the statutory authority and to monitor the needs of the consuming public. The board examines and licenses all eligible candidates for entry into the profession of speech-language pathology and audiology. It recommends appropriate changes in the law to assure fairness and equality. The board conducts formal hearings when necessary and prosecutes by due process any violators of KRS 334A.
The board is a self-supporting agency and receives no General Fund tax appropriation. It is funded entirely through fees assessed for licensing its professionals.
Licensees are encouraged to provide the board with an up-to-date email address to make certain you are receiving important information from the board.
Renewals received during the grace period, Feb. 1, 2016 to March 2, 2016, will incur a late fee of $50. Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) cannot be earned during the grace period for this renewal cycle. Failure to renew by March 2, 2016 will result in the termination of your SLP, AUD or SLP-Assistant license.
Fees have increased to $50 and $100 for mailing lists. The Mailing List Request Form can be found under the "Resources" tab above.
Online Renewal Instructions:
Kentucky One Stop Business Portal Registration
The Kentucky One Stop Business Portal (One Stop) is an initiative to conduct online services with Kentucky state government through a single online portal. Registration with One Stop is a prerequisite to renewing your license online. You may use your existing user name and password to sign into One Stop. If you did not renew online last year, you must create a One Stop account. If you are having trouble creating or using this account, please contact One Stop at 502-782-8930 and wait through the entire message to be transferred to the next available agent, or email KYBOS.SUPPORT@ky.gov. If you are creating a new One Stop business account, you will receive an email with a link to activate your account. Please allow up to fifteen (15) minutes for this email to be delivered to your inbox. Upon receipt, click the link to activate your account and log into One Stop using the username and password you created (One Stop automatically generates “cit\” in front of your username). You must then close that browser, return to the board’s website and click the yellow renewal tab. This will take you directly to the Occupations and Professions user registration page.
Occupations and Professions Online Renewal System
You are required to enter your user name and password again. This is the exact same username and password used for the One Stop Business Portal, as above. As you advance through the renewal system, you must click the “Continue” button at the bottom of each screen. Do not press the “Enter” key; please wait 2-3 seconds before clicking “Continue” or you may be looped back and have to start over. Be sure that you have double-checked your email address, phone numbers and all other contact information, as requested, when renewing your license. The board needs this information for future correspondence. If your contact information changes throughout the year, you must submit a name/address change form, available on the website.
The Office of Occupations and Professions suggests completing your renewal at least two weeks prior to your expiration date.
