WE DID IT!
The Massachusetts State Legislature passes SLP provisional licensure bill
Thanks to the countless hours of advocacy by the MSHA Executive Committee along with hundreds of members, students, and allies, H.5094 - providing provisional licensure to speech-language pathologists during their Clinical Fellowship - has been passed and signed by the Governor on November 11, 2022!
We are continuing to work hard to ensure that the process of producing the regulations that support implementation of this bill proceed smoothly. The Board of Registration for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology has scheduled a meeting on March 6, 2023 to discuss these
Thank you to everyone who has written, called, and testified in support of our graduate students and their early career goals.
