I’d like to thank Beck for writing and for this opportunity to explain that, in the document he refers to, the Task Force on Support Personnel set different training requirements for ATs and SLPAs because the proposed scope of practice was much more limited for ATs than for SLPAs. After his letter to me, Beck accepted an invitation to participate in a conference call with the audiologists on the Task Force. We value this kind of input.
Readers of AJA might also be interested to know that we received more than 250 responses to this document. Numerous audiologists expressed another view, asking that the Task Force expand the scope of responsibilities for the AT. Task Force members are working diligently to prepare guidelines that will best meet the needs of ASHA members.
