In line with other health-related service disciplines, evidence-based practice (EBP) has recently been adapted by ASHA as a primary guiding principle for speech-language pathologists (SLP) and audiologists (ASHA, 2005). EBP refers to an approach to clinical decision-making in which different sources of information are integrated into an action plan that best serves the long-term interests of individuals with communication disorders.
Three sources of information serve as the basis for decision-making within the EBP framework: client characteristics, clinician expertise, and empirical evidence (ASHA, 2005; Sackett, Straus, Richardson, Rosenberg, & Haynes, 2000). The triangulation of information garnered from these three sources is considered “best practice.” In this article, each of these sources of information is introduced as it relates to planning and evaluating treatment with bilingual children with identified speech sound disorder (SSD).
