Idaho RID Business Meeting 4-8-17 Power point link
Stephen Snow to introduce the History of Licensure in Idaho. This is six years in the making, the supreme court required some changes before allowing to become a new law. Now it is officially called the “Idaho hearing and speech service board”. Included on the six seat Board are; one interpreter, one audiologist, and one SLP. In changing the name and including all services provided to deaf, hard of hearing we can keep the cost down( $100/yr instead of $600/yr interpreter fees-tax deductible write-off). Will be enforced july 2018. Without the new board the previous licensuring had “no teeth”. If you have EIPA-that is acceptable within that field, aswell as other state passed test and other rid tests. The details of all the acceptable ranges and how to enforce, aswell as payment price are still TBD. We want to allow choices, and flexibility while providing clients with “qualified interpreters”.
