Audiologist receives recognition


In June, Deborah John, Doctor of Audiology (Au.D), Clinical Supervisor, received her 2nd Award for Continuing Education (ACE) by the American Speech Language Hearing Association. According to ASHA “The ACE is a formal recognition of professionals who have demonstrated their commitment to lifelong learning by earning 7.0 ASHA continuing education units (CEUs) (equivalent to 70 contact hours) within a 36-month period.” (http://www.asha.org/ce/CEUs/ace)


In addition, she was selected as a Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) site visitor for 2017-2021. "The Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) accredits eligible clinical doctoral programs in audiology and master's degree programs in speech-language pathology. The CAA relies on a dedicated corps of volunteers serving as Council members and site visitors to accomplish the work of the accreditation program. The CAA serves the public by promoting excellence in the graduate education of audiologists and speech-language pathologists. Through a peer review process, the CAA establishes accreditation standards and facilitates continuous quality improvement of the programs it accredits. Graduates of CAA-accredited and candidate programs are educated in a core set of skills and knowledge required for entry into independent professional practice. The CAA is committed to quality, and dedicated to audiology and speech-language pathology programs’ success in preparing future professionals.” (http://caa.asha.org/).
