The Massachusetts State Legislature passes SLP provisional licensure bill,

still awaiting finalization of regulations and implementation

Thanks to the countless hours of advocacy by the MSHA Executive Committee along with hundreds of members, students, and allies, H.5094 - providing provisional licensure to speech-language pathologists during their Clinical Fellowship - has been passed and signed by the Governor on November 11, 2022!

Update: October 2, 2023

The Board of Registration for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology met and updated their web site to reflect that the regulations for implementation of provisional licensure for clinical fellows are still being drafted. Provisional licensure will not be possible until after the regulations are finalized and implemented. While we have no specific timeline to offer you, we are working hard to advocate for new graduates throughout the process.

Would you like advice on how to communicate with your legislators?
