Audiology & Speech Language Pathology
Audiology: Audiologists perform the functions necessary for the prevention, assessment, habilitation, rehabilitation, and maintenance of persons with hearing, auditory function, and vestibular function impairments and related impairments.

Speech-Language Pathology: Speech-Language Pathologists apply principles and methods associated with the development and disorders of human communication skills and dysphagia for the purpose of improving quality of life by reducing impairments of body functions and structures, activity limitations, participation restrictions, and environmental barriers.

The practice of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology does not include medical diagnosis, medical treatment, or surgery.

Effective August 24, 2017, a licensed Nebraska Audiologist will no longer be required to obtain and maintain a Hearing Instrument Specialist license in order to dispense hearing instruments.  Neb. Rev. Stat. §38- 1509 (2) will now read, “A licensed audiologist who maintains a practice pursuant to licensure as an audiologist in which hearing instruments are regularly dispensed or who intends to maintain such a practice shall be exempt from the requirement to be licensed as a hearing instrument specialist.”
