Who is EAA?
The Educational Audiology Association (EAA) is an international professional organization for audiologists who specialize in the management of hearing and hearing impairment within the educational environment. EAA was established in 1984 to advocate for educational audiologists and the students they serve. AAA, ASHA and AG Bell recognize EAA as a related professional organization (RPO) which facilitates direct communication between EAA, AAA, ASHA, AG Bell and other RPOs as well as providing a forum for EAA issues. Through the efforts of the EAA Executive Board and individual members, the association responds to issues and concerns which shape our profession.
EAA is open to audiologists, speech-language pathologists, teachers of the hearing impaired or professionals from related fields who have an active interest in the mission of the association. Associate membership is available to students in audiology with a bachelor’s degree.
What Programs and Services Does EAA Provide?
EAA sponsors professional continuing education webinars as well as the EAA Summer Conference, held every other year (odd years). These meetings provide opportunities for exchanging clinical and professional information with colleagues from around the country. The continuing education credits offered are an excellent way to keep up-to-date in a rapidly changing field. These meetings offer individual members an opportunity to express their concerns and voice their opinions in a supportive environment.
Through its publications, EAA communicates the activities and ideas of educational audiologists across the nation.
- Educational Audiology Review: The official newsletter with state-of-the-Art clinical information and current professional issues and concerns; published monthly.
- Journal of Educational, Pediatric & (Re)Habilitative Audiology: Articles relating to the practice of educational audiology; published every year.
- Online Membership Directory: always up-to-date, it is invaluable as a networking tool.
Nowhere else can an educational audiologist find proven instruments, tests, videos and forms created and tested by educational audiologists. EAA’s product line has grown exponentially as members share their expertise and develop proven materials invaluable to the profession.
State contacts assist with coordinating state and local meetings and membership recruitment. They may also act as a liaison for local and state issues and concerns.
In addition to an ever-expanding website EAA members can access a listserv for immediate feedback and problem-solving with their peers around the world.
