Prolongation of Current Allowances

December 14, 2020

Pursuant to North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order No. 130, Section 3, the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Speech Language Pathology and Audiology (“Board”) has been authorized to waive or modify regulatory licensure requirements temporarily for persons that meet certain qualifications, where those licensure requirements would prevent or impair allowing those persons to provide care. This Board will make these allowances until April 1, 2021. Please check the announcements page regularly for future updates. Licensed providers in other states that do not currently hold a license in North Carolina may provide telepractice services to residents in North Carolina while these allowances are being made, so long as their state licensure Board has put forth allowances for them to do so as well.
