Speech-Language Pathology Assistance (SLPA) certificate

If you are interested in becoming an American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) certified Speech-Language Pathology Assistant and working as support personnel to a speech-language pathologist, this program may be right for you.

The SLPA certificate meets the minimum technical coursework requirements recommended by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Students should check with state requirements for additional course work, observations, and clinical supervision that may be required.

Northern Arizona University cannot confirm whether a particular course, degree, or certificate meets requirements for professional licensure in the student's home state. The student is responsible for determining requirements for licensure in the state in which the student lives. Current contact information for the applicable licensing boards can be located here: http://www.asha.org/advocacy/state/

At this time, the SLPA certificate program is not approved in California. Students who desire to be licensed as a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant should contact the California Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board, 2005 Evergreen Street, Suite 2100, Sacramento, California 95815, Phone (916) 263-2666, Fax (916) 263-2668, www.speechandhearing.ca.gov
