The Certificate in Auditory-Based Intervention (ABI) is offered to full time students in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology as a specialty, supplemental course of study to the degree programs to which they have been accepted.  The purpose of this certificate is to provide a strong foundation for aspiring professionals who wish to develop listening and spoken language skills in individuals who are deaf/hard of hearing.  The certificate will be embedded within the existing degree programs in the department; certificate candidates will complete 15 semester credit hours beyond those already part of their graduate program for their respective degrees.  Students may select individual courses in which they have interest, however, completion of all courses within the program is required for certificate eligibility.


The ABI certificate provides coursework and practicum experiences which will contribute to the knowledge and skills required for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in Speech-Language Pathology, AG Bell Academy for Listening and Spoken Language Specialists certification (LSLS Cert AVT® or LSLS Cert. AVEd®), as well as the American Board of Audiology Cochlear Implant Specialty (CISC®) and Pediatric Audiology Specialty (PASC®) certifications.
