I've been figuratively sitting on this blog post for ages.
It might be unpopular, and so, I've been afraid to say it. That's just how I am. I don't want to ruffle any feathers. I don't particularly want any angry comments on my post or social media.
But you know what? This pedestal on which we're placing "evidence-based practice" is all wrong.
Actually no, EBP has the right to be on a pedestal...when we're interpreting what EBP means correctly. But when we're throwing around the term haphazardly...it's a problem.
It's confusing, it's alienating, and it's not leading to better therapy.

Let me start with how Kiwi Speech got its name. I currently live in Pittsburgh, but it took living in a few different states and countries to get here. One of which (and the one that is truly "home"), was New Zealand. When I was first starting my business, I wanted a name that represented who I was, but was also catchy and kid-friendly. A person from New Zealand is colloquially referred to as a "kiwi", hence, Kiwi Speech was born.
