Board of Registration for Speech Language Pathology and Audiology transition

20 Sep 2022 10:33 PM | Barbara Wilson Arboleda (Administrator)

MSHA has learned that the Board of Registration for Speech Language Pathology and Audiology is transitioning from its current oversight organization, the Division of Occupational Licensure" to the Department of Public Health. This change is the result of the recent signing of a new law signed by Governor Baker that moves 13 health care related boards into DPH oversight.

It is not clear at this time what impact this may have on members or policies, though it's reassuring to know that our licensing body will be overseen by an organization that is primarily dedicated to health and health care practices.

This transition will take place on November 6, 2022. Any licenses renewed after that date will renew under the DPH's licensing system.

We anticipate information to be sent to members as their licenses are up for renewal, however, we will also keep you apprised of any updates on this issue.


Vision Statement

The Massachusetts Speech-Language-Hearing Association will be recognized as an authority and resource in the fields of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology by legislative bodies, related professional associations and consumers.
