The Oregon Speech Pathology Academy (OSPA) is a non-profit (501c6, mutual benefit with members) organization run by dedicated volunteers. Our mission is to provide educational and networking opportunities to Speech-Language Pathologists in the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA metro areas. Our members have a wide variety of expertise and work in setting including schools, medical, early intervention, and private practice. Membership offers opportunities for 18 to 24 professional development hours approved by the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. Our speakers cover various disorder areas within the pediatric to adult population. The primary goals of OSPA include:
Providing educational opportunities for the practicing speech-language pathologist, speech-language pathology assistants, and graduate and undergraduate speech pathology students;
Providing a forum for the timely dissemination of professionally related information; and
Providing a network system for the exchange of information between OSPA members.
Founded as OASPA in 1972 by SLP’s who were mostly private practitioners. These
practitioners wanted to meet to more frequently than OSHA. No different than
today, their goal was to secure their continuing education for their licensure
The list of founders includes Bob Blakely, Verna Pollack, Kurt Wise and Joann
