Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Licensing

The DC Board of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology regulates the practice of audiology and speech-language pathology. The Board advises the Mayor and administers and enforces the law. The Board also evaluates applicants' qualifications and administers exams; recommends standards and procedures; issues licenses; receives and reviews complaints; and requests investigations, conducts hearings, and issues subpoenas.

The Board is appointed by the Mayor, with the advice and consent of the council. The Board consists of seven DC residents, including a chair: two audiologists, two speech-language pathologists, one otolaryngologist, and two consumer members. Professional members must have been engaged in practice for at least three years preceding appointment. The consumer member must be at least 18 years old, with no affiliation with either the practice of audiology or the practice of speech-language pathology or other health profession. Licenses expire on December 31 of even years.
