Use of Assistants By Speech-Language Pathologists, Audiologists and Teachers of the Hearing Impaired

Subchapter E of the regulations of the State Board of Examiners in Speech-Language and Hearing, 49 Pa. Code §§ 45.301-45.308, is controlling in the use of assistants by speech-language pathologists, audiologists and teachers of the hearing-impaired.

Any licensee who is interested in employing an assistant is required to complete a form, that can be downloaded from the Board’s website or received in hard copy from the Board office, giving the name of the assistant, the location where the assistant will work, certification that the assistant has met the education and training requirements mandated by § 45.304 of the regulations and an attestation by the assistant and the licensee that the assistant has read the chapter of the regulations relating to assistants.  Beginning with the 2006 biennial licensee renewal period, no licensee who employs one assistant or a maximum of three assistants will be permitted to renew his/her licensee unless the completed form has been filed with the Board.  Please be sure that, if you employ assistants in your practice, you have a completed form on file in the Board’s office.
