Welcome to the home of the College of Audiologists and "Speech-Language Pathologists" of Newfoundland and Labrador!

We are part of the Newfoundland and Labrador Council of Health Professionals, which was created in 2010 by the Health Professionals Act.   Although Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists have been working for many years to esablish licensure for our professions, the  College has only come in to official existence after the Health Professionals Act.  The Proclamation for Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists occurred on April 30, 2013.  After that date, all Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists practicing in Newfoundland and Labrador must be registered with the NL Council of Health Professionals.

New Criteria and Terminology for Childhood Language Disorder in Canada

"In 2015, researchers in the United Kingdom began a project called “Criteria and Terminology Applied to Language Impairments: Synthesizing the Evidence” (CATALISE) to address problems with identification criteria and terminology for children with language difficulties. They formed a consortium that included an international panel of 59 experts in childhood language development and disorders from ten disciplines, including speech-language pathology, education, psychology, pediatrics and psychiatry, as well as community stakeholders. Eight panel members were Canadian and 32 were speech-language pathologists (S-LPs). The CATALISE consortium conducted two consensus studies using the Delphi method to develop identification criteria and terminology for childhood language disorder." (SAC resource page)

"SAC recommends members and associates support the promotion and implementation of the CATALISE consortium consensus statements on identification criteria and terminology for childhood language disorder. SAC recognizes that clinicians may have questions or encounter challenges as they move to adopt the recommendations." (SAC resource page)
