A targeted and patient-oriented therapy calls for stringent decisions throughout the diagnostic und therapy process. Since different options have to be considered prior to these decisions, decision-making always requires complex thinking processes. These complex thinking and decision-making processes are subsumed in the term of clinical reasoning. Several different forms of clinical reasoning can be identified. One of the most important forms is scientific reasoning, which is especially relevant for conducting evidence-based medicine. After an introduction to scientific reasoning, its application in speech and language therapy will be illustrated by presenting two hands-on examples. © Hippocampus Verlag 2012.
