Do you know someone who has sparked innovation or explored a bold idea that led to a great clinical achievement? Consider nominating that person for a 2018 clinical achievement award to honor those accomplishments.
Each year, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation recognizes forward-thinking people who have made exceptional contributions to clinical practice in audiology and/or speech-language pathology, and provides funds to further the awarded work. Professionals honored for these clinical achievements are changing people’s lives and empowering professionals in the discipline.
Help recognize clinical excellence by submitting a nomination by April 13. Nomination criteria and requirements, as well as past award recipient profiles, are available online. The ASHFoundation community will celebrate awardees at the 2018 ASHA Convention in Boston.
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.
State Clinical Achievement Awards and Louis M. DiCarlo Award for Recent Clinical Achievement recognize specific accomplishments—clearly defined and substantiated—within the past six years. The DiCarlo awardee receives $2,000 to further the work upon which the award is based.
The DiCarlo awardee is selected from among state-level nominees. Each state association may nominate an individual for the ASHFoundation State Clinical Achievement Award 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.
