this State for up to 10 calendar days per year, consecutively
or in aggregate. This temporary permit may be issued to an
individual who is licensed in good standing to practice

which the psychologist provides services in this State is
considered one working day. In no case shall a person
practicing pursuant to this subsection (a) establish a
permanent office location in Illinois, nor prepare or publish

listing an Illinois address or Illinois-based phone number.
Time devoted to providing testimony in court or in deposition
shall not be counted as part of the 10 calendar days allowed

    An applicant for a temporary permit under this subsection

unencumbered license in good standing in another jurisdiction
and (ii) has applied for a license under this Act due to a

which he or she is licensed. The temporary authorization
granted under this subsection (b) expires upon the issuance of
a license under this Act or upon the notification that
