Abstract

The need for more and stronger evidence for treatment approaches has become a priority
in speech- language pathology in recent years. Results of a survey indicate that clinicians
working with patients with aphasia are more likely to choose a treatment approach based
on previous success with it rather than based on evidence. Doctoral level clinicians are
more likely to review the evidence than are master’s level clinicians. The concept of
evidence-based practice needs to be strongly promoted in the university setting so that
beginning clinicians have already established the habit of reviewing evidence before
using a technique.
