Speech-Language Pathologist and Audiologist Licensing
Telepractice in Health Care Settings for Minnesota Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists
What is telepractice?
Telepractice typically involves the application of videoconferencing to provide or support health care delivery and is viewed as a mode of delivery of health care services, not a separate form of practice.
Is licensure required in Minnesota to provide telepractice?
The provision of speech-pathology or audiology services in Minnesota through telepractice, electronic, or other means, regardless of the location of the speech-language pathologist or audiologist, shall constitute the practice of speech-language pathology or audiology and shall require Minnesota licensure. Please note that the Minnesota Department of Health licensing requirement does not include individuals who have a current speech language pathologist license issued by the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board and work with K-12 students.
Note: Please contact the Minnesota Department of Education if you are a school-based speech language pathologist, with a license issued from the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board.
