dered when evaluating the quality and credibility of evidence available to support clinical recommendations. The approach grew out of awareness of the limitations of expert opinion as the basis for making decisions regarding the assessment and treatment of individuals with communication and other disorders. Dollaghan's Handbook of Evidence-Based Practice in Communication Disorders is widely used by researchers, clinicians, faculty and students.

Dollaghan's work is credited with changing the course of research and clinical care in areas examining the mechanisms of word learning and the diagnostic assessments of child language, as well as recovery of communication skills in children who suffered traumatic brain injury.

She helped develop a nonword repetition test that is now a common tool for identifying language processing deficits in children from differing socioeconomic backgrounds.

"Through Dr. Dollaghan's research, we have a better understanding of the word-learning difficulty children with language disorders experience," wrote Dr. Jon Miller, professor emeritus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of a letter to ASHA supporting the nomination. "She found they take away less information about a new word heard only once, affecting both comprehension and production skills. Follow-up research revealed that a relatively simple task, repeating non-words, balanced for phonetic content, was a highly sensitive indicator of language disorder. This focused attention on evaluating basic language learning processes that can be assessed early in development."

Dollaghan has written many book chapters and journal articles and presented at conferences throughout the world. She has served as chairman of the ASHA's Science Advisory Board since 2008 and is an ASHA Fellow.
