SIG 2 Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders, October 2006, Vol. 16, 2-3. doi:10.1044/nnsld16.3.2
The focus on evidence-based practice (EBP) is gaining momentum in speech-language pathology and audiology; a growing number of publications address the process. Articles that describe the process and its theoretical importance appear in many professional journals. Treatment guidelines for best practice are also being published on the Internet and in scholarly journals (Dollaghan, 2004; Johnson, 2006; Reilly, 2004; Worrall & Bennett, 2001; Zipoli & Kennedy, 2005). The importance of EBP is clearly recognized by recent changes in ASHA’s official clinical decision-making policy document regarding evidence-based practice (2005a), changes in the 2005 standards for the Certificate of Clinical Competency in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP; 2005b), ASHA’s research mission in the Research and Scientific Affairs Committee’s technical report titled “Evidence-Based Practice in Communication Disorders: An Introduction” (2004) and ASHA’s Focused Initiatives (2006).
