​South Carolina Academy of Audiology

The mission of the South Carolina Academy of Audiology (SCAA) is to enhance the ability of audiologists to achieve career and practice objectives through professional development, education, research, advocacy and increased public awareness of hearing disorders and audiological services.

How does SCAA differ from AAA and/or ADA?

  • SCAA monitors specifically South Carolina state legislative activity that impacts how we practice as well as reimbursement issues.
  • SCAA looks out for the needs of hearing and balance disordered patients in the State and is involved legislatively to make sure they receive appropriate services.
  • SCAA is concerned with the licensing affecting our profession.  SCAA successfully updated our licensure law in the spring of 2014 to reflect current academic requirement of the Au.D. Degree that will shorten the time it takes to become licensed in SC.
  • SCAA monitors legislation that affects our “scope of practice” issues, such as procedures performed by others (i.e. hearing aid dispensers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and nurses). 
  • SCAA provides continuing educational opportunities for audiologists.
  • SCAA provides networking opportunities for audiologists.

 What Does SCAA Do?

  • Provides the services of a lobbyist to monitor and to assist members address South Carolina legislative issues
  • Recognizes it’s members for outstanding service
  • Keeps members abreast of potential  local, State, or national legislative issues that may affect the practice of audiology in South Carolina
  • Offers members access to the associations website including the membership directory, job opportunities, legislative activities, newsletter and other events and programs
  • Allows for continuing education credits (CEU’s) through the State convention and workshops
  • Provides members with the ability to participate in leadership positions within the State association
  • Networks with other professional audiological and related field organizations​

SCAA is a dynamic organization dedicated to providing audiologists practicing in South Carolina with the best professional development and legislative support.  So if you are wondering what you can do to defend your profession, join SCAA.   With your help we can address the many changes in health care that affects how you will practice in the years to come.
