The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has been providing information and resources about the appropriate use of telepractice (also called teleaudiology and telespeech) since the late 1990s. In the past 13 years, ASHA has fielded a telepractice survey to its members, disseminated guidance about the use of telepractice through practice policy documents, collaborated with other organizations, and advocated to payers and to state and federal legislators about the reimbursement and regulation of telepractice services. This article describes the key activities in ASHA’s role to date and continuing challenges.
