Evidence-Based Practice Guidelines Groups

Evidence-Based Practice Guidelines Groups

ACNDS has five active Evidence-Based Practice Guidelines Groups: Apraxia of Speech, Aphasia, Dementia, Dysarthria, and Traumatic Brain Injury. These committees were established in 2001 with support from the ASHA Executive Board of ASHA, ASHA SIG2, and the Department of Veterans Affairs National Speech-Language Pathology Organization. The scope of the groups was to examine practices related to treatment research and produce documents to disseminate in professional venues. The committees met this goal and continue to generate high quality review of scientific evidence related to assessment and treatment in order to, “link application of betters practices as suggested by the research literature and expert opinion, with the clinical ‘realities’ of service delivery.” (Golper et al., 2001, p. 9). The products of these efforts are posted on the ANCDS website and also appear in other professional journals.
