Michigan Early On to Correct Document in Response to Letter from MAA

In late 2013, it was brought to our attention that the Early On provider qualifications required that audiologists maintain the "Certification of Clinical Competence in Audiology" (CCC-A), in order to be eligible to serve as an Early On provider. The source of this information was the "Michigan Department of Education Early On Procedures, January 25, 2013".  The MAA executive board prepared a letter requesting that the MDE review these requirements, and consider a change, as they did not reflect the current state of credentialing for the profession of audiology.  In response to the letter from MAA, MDE will be enabled to make the necessary corrections to the document.  Please see the attached letters to learn more.
