Auditory-Verbal International’s (AVI) Certification Council has confirmed that it will proceed with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s (ASHA) Stage II Application for Specialty Recognition in Auditory-Verbal Communication. This application seeks Specialty Recognition for those ASHA holders of the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in speech-language pathology or audiology who also hold the AVI Certificate in Auditory-Verbal Therapy (Cert. AVT).
The AVI Certificate is granted to applicants who have shown through their education, experience, and examination that they have achieved minimal professional competencies to develop auditory, speech, and language skills by maximizing the use of residual hearing through (re)habilitative procedures which are appropriate for the full use of current technology (amplification systems, hearing aids, and cochlear implants) in children having difficulty with the management of auditory information including those who are deaf or hard of hearing. (Italics indicates the wording used by the AVI Certification Council and approved by the ASHA Clinical Specialty Board to describe the area of specialty for which ASHA recognition is being sought.)
