Speech-Language Pathology Governing Board

Welcome to the Speech-Language Pathology Governing Board.

This site was developed to provide items of interest to licensees, certificate holders, applicants, and consumers. It is our hope that the site is useful and informative. We invite you to contact the office with your comments, suggestions or further information on specific questions.

Initial or Reinstatement License

To apply for an initial New Hampshire license or to reinstate a New Hampshire license, use our electronic submission feature to request an application packet or contact the Office of Licensed Allied Health Professionals at (603) 271-8389 and request an application packet.

License Cycle

All Speech-Language Pathologist licenses and Speech Language Assistants certificates expire December on 31 in every odd-numbered years per New Hampshire Statute RSA 328-F:19. Depending on when your application is approved a license may be valid for just a few months of the two-year cycle. Initial license fees are not pro-rated. Renewal notices are sent out from the office no later than October 15 of the renewal year. Continuing education requirements are dependent on initial and ongoing timelines of licenses.
