JARA - Journal of the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology
The Journal of the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology is a peer-reviewed journal published annually. We encourage you to submit manuscripts of work that would be of interest to ARA members. Please take some time to review the extensive thought and effort being completed by our colleagues across the country.
We are pleased to inform you that we have released the 2018 JARA manuscripts. Please take a moment to review this latest article by Brian Kreismann and colleagues about Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT). In this study, they created an interesting survey about HAT and perceptions about usefulness and costs. Their survey was conducted over a six month period, across seven different clinics and included 117 adults who were scheduled for a hearing evaluation. Their calculations about expected costs and willingness to pay are a novel research approach to consider in our daily practice.
