The professional examination in speech-language pathology is a national examination (i.e., the PRAXIS test).  Students receive preparation for this examination during the M.S. program in speech-language pathology.  Individual states grant licensure to practice as a speech-language pathologist and may have specific content requirements.  An additional license may be required for work in specific settings (e.g., teaching license or equivalent to work in a public school). Many states allow applicants to transfer teaching licensure from another state; therefore students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (educational license) and then apply to another state per the reciprocity agreement, if available.  Please contact Wendy Krueger, Director of Clinical Education, for more information.
