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.
The Office of Occupations and Professions anticipates online renewals will not be available after 4:00 PM on April 21, 2016, until further notice. As we transition to a new platform, users may download forms from the “Resources” tab then “Applications and Forms”.
Please avoid phone calls to Occupations and Professions staff during this period to allow processing of paper applications. Priorities will be given to occupations and professions without grace periods or to those with billing issues related to end of month licensure.
It is our hope this will be a brief interruption in our online abilities and the licensing system will be a substantial improvement in user access and expectations.
The Office of Occupations and Professions suggests completing your renewal at least two weeks prior to your expiration date.
