Has your state considered laws or regulations that would allow other professionals—applied behavior analysts, music therapists or hearing aid dispensers, for example—to provide speech-language or hearing services?
Or perhaps you want to promote legislation in your state that would create a single, comprehensive license rather than separate licenses for those working in health care and in schools.
ASHA has easily accessible tools audiologists and SLPs can use in state-level advocacy efforts on 11 “hot topics” related to communication sciences and disorders: applied behavior analysis, copay equity, dyslexia treatment, hearing aid dispensers, loan forgiveness, music therapy, oversight of the professions, performance assessments, state privilege tax, telepractice and universal licensure.
Tools for each topic include a summary of the issue; talking points to use when advocating with legislators, regulators and administrators; issue briefs in downloadable handouts; sample letters; and examples of state bills.
