Our research community envisions a time when speech-language pathologists who work daily with people with aphasia in various clinical settings will:

1. imagine the "happiest ending" for and with the person with aphasia - prioritizing the client's values - and gear therapy toward that end;

2. know how to use interventions that are efficacious based on scientific evidence, and recognize interventions that are not yet shown to be efficacious;

3. make recommendations for treatment type, treatment schedule, and prognosis based on evidence, and not solely in response to financial policy constraints and productivity pressures;

4. recognize that clinical expertise is equally important as evidence in the implementation of best practice.

and some will call them

soft data
