Students completing graduate training from an accredited or candidacy accredited program become eligible for certification by the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA). The Association awards the Certificate of Clinical Competence to educationally and professionally qualified applicants. Typically, individuals having met the certification requirements for ASHA will be eligible for state licensing. Some states, however, require coursework in addition to that included in the program's curriculum, in order to work in public school settings. Resources related to state licensure requirements and state Department of Education requirements are available at the website below. Please be advised that laws, regulations and policies may change at any time, so always check with the state you plan on practicing in for the most up-to-date information.
