The Texas Jurisprudence Exam for licensed speech-language pathologists, assistants in speech-language pathologist, audiologists, or assistants in audiology is an on-line training exercise focused on state law and board rules that relate to the regulation of speech-language pathology and audiology. There are two different training exercises, one for speech-language pathology and one for audiology. Please select the appropriate exercise for our profession. Questions are in multiple choice or true/false format, and links to the applicable law and rules are provided. This is a “no-fail” training exercise that we believe you will find to be of value.
Please note: There are two different exams. If you are a speech professional, please select the Speech-Language Pathology Jurisprudence Exam and if you are an audiology professional, choose the Audiology Jurisprudence Exam. If you hold a dual license you must complete both exams.
