F oolish me. I thought the most critical and controversial issue in Communication Disorders (CD) is the professional doctorate. Recent events may have proved me wrong. In a past issue of AJA, Aaron Thornton described the ferocious opposition he encountered when he developed an audiometric technician program (November 1993). In their article on the professional doctorate, Humes and Diefendorf made the suggestion to use bachelor graduates in CD as audiometric technicians (July 1993). This comment, not what they said about the AuD, generated a record number of letters-to-the-editor. Support personnel (SP) is an issue that is not going away and one that is of significant importance to audiology.
