Please send ur letter ASAP and if u want it printed here – send a copy.
Big news – The Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA) is suing American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA). It “SEEKS INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, DAMAGES AND PUNISHMENT FOR ASHA’S FRAUDULENT ACTIVITIES”
wow – wow – wow. deceit is not sweet folks. from the link:
see the link to see a link to the official complaint
now i wont pretend to really understand this easily but basically on a quick review it looks like an association of doctors of audiology are fighting with the association of speech and hearing “professionals” – the doctors dont like that the speech and hearing folks are saying their association’s CCC-A is required for folks to provide services, and work with students, aides and assistants cuz it is NOT. the ADA (the doctors of audiology academy gave ASHA (the speech and hearing association folks) a chance FIX their false info but the ASHA no do do so the ADA say we got no choice but to sue YOU.
aint that a pickle
and u all thought we fight too much
its worse cuz the ASHA fought back DIRTY – see the full article
also at the bottom of the article is a link to the ADA’s Legal Action Update and since this article of Aug 4 there are 2 updates there – a response from the ASHA (yawn) and a response to the response from the ADA which says “The revised language needs to be consistent and clear, not inconsistent and artful.” Among many other important things.
So the doctors of audiology do NOT like the ASHA (speech and hearing folks) misleading, misinforming, and fraudalently “requiring” professionals to go for the ASHA certification and training etc when it is not required etc.
that seems like a legimate complaint cuz deceit is NOT SWEET
so keep an eye out on this lawsuit
the plot thickens
while i know many speech and hearing folks and like ’em just fine – i profess this #hitty business dont reflect well on their profession – does it?
ah yet another reason to object to being mislabeled a “hearing specialist” by the AG Bell association – cuz their specialists aint so special nor are they so PROFESSIONAL if they are engaging in deceitful practices and trying to require doctors of audiology to get unneeded certification from ASHA when it aint even a bloody requirement and hmmmm can we guess what that certification entails?
Say the word “iceSCREAM…”
NOTE: hmmm i wonder when the ASHA shoved in the word “Language” into their title but neglected to change the abbreviation – hmmm is the L insert just another form of misleading and fraudulent conduct by the ASHA?
Big thanks to the person who sent me this link – you rock!
