Kleinert to Receive 2013 Louis M. DiCarlo Award for Clinical Achievement

Published: Sep 26, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 26, 2013) − The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation has just announced that Jane O. Kleinert, associate professor in the Division of Communication Sciences & Disorders at the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences, has won the 2013 Louis M. DiCarlo Award for Recent Clinical Achievement.

 

The DiCarlo Award recognizes an individual's significant accomplishments in the advancement of clinical service in speech-language pathology and/or audiology. Each year one recipient is chosen from among individuals nominated by state speech-language-hearing associations.

 

Kleinert was nominated for the development and implementation of the Teaching Age-Appropriate Academic Learning via Communication (TAALC) project, a state/federally funded State Personnel Development (SPDG) Grant in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The project began in 2009 and continues to the present. The primary purpose of the project is to ensure that all students with the most significant disabilities and complex communication needs have communication systems in place in order to participate in the academic curriculum in the public school setting.

 

Kleinert will receive her award at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation Founders Breakfast at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s annual convention in November.
