Can a licensed speech and language pathologist (“SLP”) conduct student evaluations virtually if the student is located out-of-state during the evaluation?
Yes. An SLP may conduct a virtual evaluation for a student located out-of-state during distance learning so long as the student’s individual circumstances are considered. If it is determined that the student’s needs, e.g., educational level, linguistic and cultural influences, and access to necessary equipment, require additional assistance that could not effectively be resolved through a virtual assessment, the evaluation should occur in-person when possible.
