ABA Practice Analysis in Clinical Audiology will help set standards for essential skills and knowledge needed by audiologists of today and tomorrow

We are looking for a cross section of audiologists from all types and sizes of clinical settings to help us as we move toward a final, comprehensive State of the Profession of Audiology Report.

The American Board of Audiology® (ABA) announced today it is seeking experienced, currently practicing audiologists to participate in the beta version of its upcoming ABA Practice Analysis in Clinical Audiology survey. A first for the profession, the practice analysis will help the ABA gain valuable insight into the profession, including a Blueprint of Knowledge Domains that audiologists can review to determine if they hold mastery, as well as an in-depth description of the specific tasks, knowledge, and skills that are performed across all practice areas.

According to Mindy K. Brudereck, AuD, Chair of the ABA Board of Governors, the practice analysis will set a baseline that will help audiologists, educational audiology programs, and employers make informed decisions about how to structure their audiologic practice or whom to hire to create the best offerings for patients.

“We have been working toward creating this comprehensive practice analysis for many months, and we are looking for a cross section of audiologists from all types and sizes of clinical settings to help us as we move forward not only with the Practice Analysis, but also with the final, comprehensive State of the Profession of Audiology Report.”
