Do you know someone who has sparked innovation or explored a bold idea leading to a great clinical accomplishment? Consider honoring that person with a nomination for one of three 2017 clinical achievement awards.
Since 1983, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation has recognized forward-thinking people who have demonstrated exceptional contributions to clinical practice in audiology and/or speech-language pathology, and has provided funds to further the awarded work. Professionals honored for these clinical achievements are demonstrably changing the lives of people they serve.
Help recognize clinical excellence by submitting a nomination by April 7. Indicate why you are passionate about your colleague’s accomplishments and why that person deserves national attention. Explore nomination criteria and requirements, as well as past award recipient profiles, online. The ASHFoundation community will celebrate awardees at the 2017 ASHA Convention.
Frank R. Kleffner Lifetime Clinical Career 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) must have been specific and multiple, had great impact on clients, and demonstrated improved quality of clinical care. The awardee receives 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 helped professionalize and expand the ASHFoundation’s charitable mission.
Louis M. DiCarlo Award for Recent Clinical Achievement recognizes specific accomplishments—clearly defined and substantiated—within the past six years. The awardee receives $2,000 to further the work upon which the award is based.
The awardee is selected from among state-level winners. Each state association is invited to select an ASHFoundation State Clinical Achievement Award recipient for contributions that advance clinical practice in audiology or speech-language pathology, one of whom will be selected to receive the DiCarlo Award.
This award is named for the late Louis M. DiCarlo, the fund’s originator, who had a long and distinguished CSD clinical career.
Rolland J. Van Hattum Award for Contribution in the Schools 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 and the awardee’s school system receives $500.
Eligible 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 career to providing and supporting audiology and speech-language pathology services in schools.
