Pediatric Audiology Specialty Certification
Obtaining a Pediatric Audiology Specialty Certification (PASC®) means that an audiologist has acquired specialized knowledge in the field of pediatric audiology and has demonstrated a high level of knowledge in this specialty area.
The PASC testifies to an audiologist’s expertise in pediatric audiology and demonstrates to colleagues, other health-care providers, patients, and employers that he or she has acquired a high level of knowledge in the field of pediatric audiology and is the best option for treating children with audio-vestibular disorders and hearing loss.
While a certification is not a guarantee of any particular skill or competency, an audiologist holding specialty certification has demonstrated the ability to pass a rigorous examination and has practiced in the field of audiology for a minimum number of years.
Specialty certification is voluntary and is not tied to any other certification. Specialty certification is offered by the ABA without requirement for membership in any professional organization. Specialty certification may be obtained independent of any other certification.
