ITCVA is in favor of allowing Speech language pathologists to use telemedicine to supervise speech language pathology assistants.  We are also in favor of increasing the number of SLPAs allowed to be supervised by each SLP from 2 to allowing each SLP to determine how many they are capable of supervising.  This grows the capacity of this specialized field and allows better access for families with children needing the service.  Thank you for your consideration.
