ASHA Assistants Program

The Assistants Certification Program gives audiology assistants and speech-language pathology assistants (SLPA) the opportunity to become certified practitioners. ASHA certification validates and provides assurance that because of their training and continuous professional development, certificate holders are able to practice at the top of their license.

Did you know? ASHA Certification is not licensure and does not give you the ability to practice. You must meet your state requirements in order to practice.

Allison McDonald, SLPA


Meet Allison McDonald, SLPA, from Virginia! Allison received her training from James Madison University. Some of the greatest skills she brings to her job are organization, a love of teamwork, and transparency. She loves working with kids and being a part of their journey. In fact, one of her favorite experiences so far has been working with her SLP with two nonverbal children who use AAC devices—it has been educational and exciting to observe. A piece of advice? “Ask questions, look for guidance, and always take any experience as a learning opportunity to be a better professional.” Thank you for everything you do, Allison
