Restricted Activities Competency Profiles

ACSLPA Council is pleased to announce that Restricted Activities Competency Profiles were approved at their January 2016 meeting and are now available below.

The key purpose for the Restricted Activities Competency Profiles is to provide a description of the minimum competencies of SLPs and audiologists required for safe and effective practice.

These documents have been primarily developed for the regulated members of the professions and for the College itself, but will also be of value to educators, managers, and employers.

A speech-language pathologist who is a regulated member of ACSLPA is authorized to perform the following restricted activities in relation to or as part of providing a health service:

  • to insert air under pressure into the ear canal.
  • to insert or remove instruments or devices beyond the point in the nasal passages where they normally narrow.
  • to insert or remove instruments, devices or fingers beyond the pharynx .
  • to insert or remove instruments or devices into an artificial opening into the body.
  • to administer oral diagnostic imaging contrast agents.
