Evidence-Based Practices Are Not Reformulated Best Practices: A Response to Martindale's "Children with Significant Hearing Loss: Learning to Listen, Talk, and Read--Evidence-Based Best Practices"
Schirmer, Barbara R.; Williams, Cheri
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v29 n3 p166-168 2008
"Communication Disorders Quarterly's" special series on evidence-based practices and, specifically, Martindale's article on evidence-based practices in learning to listen, talk, and read among children with significant hearing loss appear to confuse best practices with evidence-based practices and, perhaps more serious, offer little evidence for either. Although the case may be made that evidence-based practices are best practices, best practices are not evidence-based practices unless identified through evaluation of research with criteria agreed on by the research community.
