AUDIOLOGY ADVOCATE | Time to Activate to Advocate

With the 116th Congress already over a quarter under way, the Government Relations Committee (GRC) urges Academy members to get involved. It is an exciting time for audiology, with the Academy actively working and collaborating with other organizations on new policy initiatives. The audiology voice in numbers is critical for the profession in advancing these initiatives.

ACADEMY NEWS | Clinical Practice Guidelines for Cochlear Implants Now Available

Cochlear implants are auditory sensory devices designed to provide auditory perception for individuals with significant hearing loss. A majority of individuals who use a cochlear implant have the ability to understand speech in quiet and complex listening environments, and children who were born with hearing loss are now able to develop excellent auditory and spoken language skills with the device.

ACAE CORNER | A Stroll Down Different Undergraduate Pathways Leading to Doctor of Audiology Programs

I received the above e-mail message while preparing the manuscript for this article. A colleague at the University of Hawaii referred this undergraduate student to me after she had initially inquired about audiology from a family medicine physician at the university. As a permanent part-time professor at the University of Hawaii (living in Maine and Florida), I teach three online prerequisite courses for academically, geographically, and culturally diverse cohorts of undergraduates interested in applying to a graduate program in audiology or speech pathology.

ABA SOUNDING BOARD | The Skinny on the Tier 1 Continuing Education Requirement for ABA Certification

Tier 1 continuing education units (CEUs) were conceived to be one of the rigorous requirements of American Board of Audiology (ABA) certification programs. ABA Certification awardees were required to earn 15 hours of Tier 1 CE credits per three-year certification cycle. The original requirements for Tier 1 offerings called for three-hour, in-depth classes with interactive learning opportunities.

SAA SPOTLIGHT | Say the Word ‘Survey’: Part 2 of 2—A Second Look at the Data on Audiology Education

Introduction and Methods

In September 2018, the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) conducted a national survey of current graduate students, externs, and recent graduates in order to evaluate the state of audiology education. With more than 1,000 responses, the results from the SAA 2018 Education and Externship Survey provide a good look at a number of the strengths and the potential areas for improvement in audiology training.

Coding and Reimbursement Main Image

CODING AND REIMBURSEMENT | When and Why to Modify

Billing modifiers were created to provide additional information to the payer about the performed procedure(s) and help describe and/or qualify the services provided. There are common modifiers used by commercial payers and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), that indicate to the payer that the services provided have been altered in a way that is different than the ascribed definition of the billing code. For example, a modifier should be used when all of the tests in a bundled code were not performed or when only one ear was tested.

PUBLIC RELATIONS | Getting Media Coverage Is Only Part of the Equation

In 1968, artist Andy Warhol coined the expression “15 minutes of fame,” when he said “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” Since that time, people who are lucky enough to be interviewed or have their story in the news often joke that they received their “15 minutes.”

The Birth of Our Professional Home

As our Academy reached its 30th birthday in 2018 and our 30th annual conference just this past March (2019), it may be instructive to the younger members to recount the events leading to the founding of our professional home. It all began at the 1987 convention of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in New Orleans. Before this event, the professional home of all audiologists in the United States was ASHA.

ARC19: Advances in Amplification

Hearing aid processing no longer operates under the assumption that the real-world listening environments are represented by simple laboratory test conditions, such as the talker of interest is in front with noise behind, or even that there is only a single talker of interest. In addition, the driving philosophy has shifted from treating a single complaint (e.g., understanding in noise) to holistically treating individuals across the full range of their real environments and experiences (e.g., connecting to an auditory world).
