Frank R. Kleffner Clinical Career Award
This award recognizes outstanding contributions to clinical science and practice in communication sciences and disorders over a period of at least 20 years in clinical service, supervision or administration of clinical service, clinical research, or other activity that has promoted clinical excellence.
A nominee’s accomplishments may have taken place anywhere in the world. The contributions must have been specific and multiple with great impact on recipients of service and must demonstrate improvement or acceleration of quality of clinical care in speech-language pathology and/or audiology. This awardee receives a commemorative art object and a recognition plaque.
This award is named for Frank R. Kleffner, past president of the ASHFoundation and ASHA, who worked tirelessly to professionalize and expand the ASHFoundation’s charitable mission.
Louis M. DiCarlo Award for Recent Clinical Achievement
Each state association is invited to select one individual to receive an ASHFoundation State Clinical Achievement Award for contributions to the advancement of knowledge in clinical practice in speech-language pathology or audiology. One of these state awardees will be selected to receive the Louis M. DiCarlo Award. Every state association is encouraged to select an awardee.
The DiCarlo Award recipient is chosen for specific accomplishments within the past six years, between 2009 and 2015. There are no restrictions on clinical achievement or activity, but the accomplishment must be specific, clearly defined and substantiated, and within the specified time frame. The honoree will receive $1,500 to further the work upon which this award is based.
The award is named for the late Louis M. DiCarlo, the originator of the fund, who had a long and distinguished CSD clinical career.
Rolland J. Van Hattum Award for Contribution in the Schools
This award recognizes exemplary commitment and contribution to the delivery of school-based audiology and/or speech-language pathology services. The awardee, who must be employed by a school system, receives $1,500.
Examples of eligible activities or achievements include exemplary clinical services, supervision or research; development of an innovative clinical or training program, especially one that is replicable; promotion or enhancement of public or private support for school-based audiology and speech-language pathology services.
This award is named for the late Rolland J. Van Hattum, who dedicated his professional career to providing and supporting audiology and speech-language pathology services in schools.
