Louis M. DiCarlo had a vision in 1982 when he established an ASHFoundation fund to recognize people who made exceptional contributions to clinical knowledge in audiology and/or speech-language pathology. He believed that “an integrated scientific approach to problem-solving and new concept design” was the wave of the future for clinical breakthroughs. Since its inception, the DiCarlo Fund has honored the clinical contributions of 32 awardees.
Help the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation continue this legacy: Nominate outstanding colleagues for this and two other 2016 clinical achievement awards.
The nomination deadline is April 11. Information about nominations—including guidelines and eligibility—and past award recipients and their accomplishments, is available online. Recipients will be recognized at ASHFoundation events during the 2016 ASHA Convention in Philadelphia.
Frank R. Kleffner Lifetime Clinical Career Award
This award recognizes at least 20 years of outstanding contributions to science and practice in clinical service, supervision or administration of clinical service, clinical research, or other activity that has promoted clinical excellence.
A nominee’s contributions to communication sciences and disorders (CSD), which may have taken place anywhere in the world, must have been specific and multiple, had great impact on clients, and demonstrate improvement or acceleration of quality of clinical care. The award includes a commemorative art object and a plaque.
This award is named for the late 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 may select one person to receive an ASHFoundation State Clinical Achievement Award for contributions that advance clinical practice in audiology or speech-language pathology. One of these state awardees will be selected to receive the Louis M. DiCarlo Award.
The DiCarlo Award recipient is chosen for specific accomplishments within the past six years. The accomplishment must be specific, clearly defined and substantiated, and within the specified time frame. The awardee receives $1,500 to further the work upon which the 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 $1,000, and the awardee’s school system receives $500.
Eligible activities or achievements include exemplary clinical services, supervision or research; development of an innovative clinical or training program, especially one that is replicable; and 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.
