Per the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Evidence-Based Practice is comprised of three components. First, there’s the external evidence. Second, there’s clinical expertise/expert opinion. Third is the client/patient/caregiver perspectives. Each component of this trifecta is equally important. Let us take a moment to think about considerations regarding caretakers and families to maximize our communicative efforts.
