Compliance

The Academy offers a wealth of resources to ensure audiologists and audiology practices maintain compliance with applicable federal regulations and are aware of new regulatory requirements as that information becomes available.

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity

Since beginning its discussions in late fall of 2019, the Academy has focused on creating better awareness among audiologists about a culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) patient, one who comes from a home environment where a language other than English is spoken and whose cultural values differ from mainstream culture.
