Audiologists & Speech-Language Pathologists are regulated in SK
Did you know that …
Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists are regulated in Saskatchewan (The Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists Act, 1992).
The Saskatchewan Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists’ (SASLPA) goal is to “license, regulate and guide the practice of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists in the interest of the public”.
Regulating in the public interest means making sure that all Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists work with the public in a safe and ethical way. SASLPA does this by:
- Setting rules for who can have a licence to work as an audiologist or speech-language pathologist. For example, members must have at least a Master’s degree in Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology;
- Setting rules and guidelines for the members to follow. For example:
- Code of Ethics;
- Rules of professional conduct;
- Standards of practice; and
- Continuing competency rules.
- Keeping a list with the names and work information of members. The public can ask to see this list.
- Looking into complaints about members.
- Carrying out discipline when members do not follow the rules for ethical and safe practice.
