Position Statements

Practice standards set out the professional expectations of audiologists and SLPs. They are the minimum knowledge, skills and judgement needed to practice safely and provide quality service to the public. Practice standards can be found in documents such as legislation, regulations, CASLPO published Practice Standards, Guidelines, Position Statements and other documents. Practice standards can also be unwritten, comprised of those generally accepted practices, principles, and techniques adopted by consensus by members of the profession. Members must take the time to read written standards and identify unwritten standards and apply them to their profession and area of practice.
