The peer review process for the document describing minimal competencies for audiologists and speech-language pathologists who provide audiologic/aural rehabilitation (AR) services has been completed. The Audiologic Rehabilitation Working Group (ARWG) (Catherine Carotta; Catherine Clark; Sue Ann Erdman, Chair; Charissa R. Lansing; Joseph J. Montano; Mary June Moseley; David J. Wark; Mary Pat Moeller and Pamela Jackson, consultants; Evelyn Williams, ex officio) is currently working on revisions to the document.
Many of the peer reviewers favored having separate competencies for audiologists and speech-language pathologists who provide AR services. Concerns were raised by some that the separation of competencies might limit the scope of practice for clinicians who provide comprehensive AR services. The revised document will clarify the concept of minimal competencies by stressing that these are the skills and knowledge one must have at a minimum if one provides AR services, not that one cannot or should not acquire and be able to demonstrate additional skills and knowledge.
