IDFPR Approves Variance for SLP and Audiology Students

April 6, 2020

On April 6, 2020, IDFPR has granted a variance on behalf of students pursuing either a speech-language pathology or audiology license.  This variance is granted based upon the particular facts surrounding the Illinois Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation issued on March 9, 2020.  The purpose of this variance is to allow licensed speech-language pathologists and audiologists to supervise their students remotely using video or audio technology as appropriate, rather than on-site.  Remote supervision may be performed telephonically or using video technology.  The supervisor should be available and prepared to offer assistance as needed when a student is providing services to a client.  This variance is hereby granted and expires July 31, 2020.
