We believe that every human being has the right to communicate and interact with the world in ways that are fulfilling and meaningful to them.

Our mission is to provide leadership in the science and practice of audiology through advocacy, promotion, education and networking. We enable audiologists to deliver the highest standards of person-centred care.

Audiology Australia is the peak body representing audiologists. In Australia audiologists are the primary specialists responsible for the non-medical management of ear disorders. Learn more about audiologists here.

A 2006 study found that one in six Australians had a hearing loss. This figure was predicted to rise to one in four by 2050. So ear disorders including hearing loss are very common and come at great cost to the Australian community.

As well as hearing loss audiologists are trained to diagnose and treat conditions such as tinnitus, vertigo, auditory processing disorder, hyperacusis and acoustic shock injury.

Audiology Australia supports audiologists to offer the optimum care to the Australian public by awarding the certificate of clinical practice (CCP). Learn more about the CCP here.

Audiology Australia also requires that members abide by a Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct.
