Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology > Web site
The Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (BSPA) was established in 1973 to license and regulate the performance of speech-language pathologists and audiologists for consumer protection. Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP), speech-language pathology assistants, and audiologists provide speech and hearing services to children, seniors, and disabled and/or vulnerable adults. SLPs treat swallowing disorders in patients with traumatic brain injury or stroke, and their clinical judgment can mean life or death for these patients at risk for aspiration.
The board regulates the professional practice of speech-language pathology and audiology through reviewing credentials for licensure, ongoing monitoring of licensees through compliance audits, and investigating complaints regarding professional competence and conduct. BSPA issues licenses to qualified applicants on an ongoing basis and renews licenses biennially in even-numbered years. There are more than 2,000 individuals licensed by the board, which employs one full time executive director and one full time administrative assistant in its Portland office.
