ARA's mission is to promote excellence in hearing care through the provision of rehabilitative and habilitative services.

 

The Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology (ARA) is a multidisciplinary organization composed of individuals whose professional work is dedicated to fostering and stimulating education, research, and interest in audiologic habilitative and rehabilitative components of hearing care. The primary purpose of ARA is to promote excellence in hearing care by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and experiences with the audiologic habilitative and rehabilitative components of hearing care. Our organization serves as a public policy advocate for audiologic rehabilitative and habilitative services. 

 
Patient-First Approach

ARA promotes a patient-first approach which fosters:

  • Better patient outcomes

  • Reduced hearing aid return rate

  • Better rapport with patients

  • Increased referrals to friends from satisfied patients

  • Greater patient ability to manage hearing difficulties

  • Improved patient quality of life

  • Patient self-empowerment

We will still welcome and invite donations to help us fund our small but important ARA organization.
