Welcome to the latest edition of Perspectives. As the new coordinator, I would like to introduce our other Coordinating Committee members and offer a brief personal perspective on aural rehabilitation (AR). Our 2017 Coordinating Committee members include Nicole L. Marone (associate coordinator), Charissa Lansing (professional development manager), Rebecca Kelly-Campbell (Perspectives editor), and our two new members at large, Elizabeth Humphrey and Jani Johnson.
As a clinical audiology faculty member, I have been an AR provider for more than 30 years. Over the years, many of my audiology colleagues have advised me that they “don't do AR” and have identified themselves as “diagnostic audiologists.” Their perspective has been that AR is something done only in groups and/or is focused primarily on auditory training, communication strategies training, or assistive listening devices. Having also worked with speech-language pathologists, I have not heard them make such a strong distinction between diagnostic and rehabilitative practice areas, but I would love to hear back from our speech-language members on that.
