Why is Legislation Important to TSHA and to YOU?

  • Legislation affects our professions!
  • Legislation can provide funds for student loan repayment for SLPs and audiologists employed in Texas public schools
  • Legislation affects reimbursement for services
  • Legislation affects who provides services
  • Legislation affects how services are provided
  • Legislation can affect quality of services
  • Legislation can affect consumer access to services
  • Legislation affects licensure

For legislators to make informed decisions about our professions and our consumers it takes all of us educating them about what speech-language pathologists and audiologists do and the impact we have on the lives of our consumers.

TSHA has a legislative team in place to help support and guide you in our grassroots efforts!
