The Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology Interstate Compact (ASLP-IC) facilitates the interstate practice of audiology and speech-language pathology while maintaining public protection.

ASLP-IC is an interstate compact, which is an agreement between states to enact legislation and enter into a contract for a specific, limited purpose or address a particular policy issue.

Current Status of ASLP-IC ASLP-IC will become operational when ten states have enacted ASLP-IC legislation. The interactive state map lists the current ASLP-IC member states and other states proposing to join the ASLP-IC. 

Privilege to Practice Once ten states enact ASLP-IC, licensed audiologists and speech-language pathologists will be able to apply for a privilege to practice in-person and through telehealth in ASLP-IC states.
The ASLP-IC offers several benefits to the public.

  • Improves continuity of care
  • Improves portability for military spouses
  • Improves access to audiology and speech-language pathology providers
  • Increases choice of audiology and speech-language pathology providers
  • Facilitates alternate delivery methods (Telehealth)
  • Simplifies/speeds up the current process
  • Addresses portability & barriers to access
  • Practice of audiology and speech-language pathology occurs in the state where the patient/client is located at the time of the patient/client encounter
