is a great resource for checking into licensure laws for each state/jurisdiction.
I just looked through a couple, and none listed the specific degree type required other than just saying "doctorate." Not sure if this is an actual reflection of state law or just an artifact of the way the site provides the information, though.
I was just confused because I live in Illinois and one of my professors told me that you can only become licensed (for clinical work) with a PhD or PsyD. I thought EdD was for educational settings only and was limited to only those that wanted to work in a school setting. But he could be wrong, I've never researched the EdD degree because I'm not interested in it. Although I suspect the site is being deceptive with their wording.
