This book is an introductory guide to the origin, definition, and use of evidence-based practice in communication disorders. It serves as a reference for speech-language pathologists and audiologists to the principles and process of evidence-based practice. The volume defines evidence-based practice and describes the origin of the concept. In addition, the book discusses how to evaluate evidence for use in clinical practice, diagnosis and screening, and treatment.
