Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board
As of January 1, 2010, the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board and the Hearing Aid Dispensers Bureau became one Board. Like many other licensing boards, the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board falls within the Department of Consumer Affairs. The Board’s mission is to protect the consumer by requiring adherence to statutes and regulations designed to ensure the qualifications and competency of providers of speech language pathology and audiology services.
As an audiologist or speech language pathologist, you have spent years studying and preparing to enter this profession. Your patients and clients rely on you for services crucial to their quality of life. If you are under investigation or believe that you will become the subject of an investigation by the Board, it is imperative that you retain competent counsel to navigate the complex and often lengthy review process. You should consult with an attorney at as early a stage as possible to preserve your rights and ensure that you do not make errors that will prove harmful to your case at a later stage.
