Screening of Speech and Language Disorders: International Perspective.
Tuomi, Seppo K.
The paper discusses various aspects of present practices in speech and language screening. It is suggested that in the future the predictiveness and cultural independence of screening devices should be increased. In addition, the need for earlier and more regular screening as well as use of non-speech personnel as test administrators is pointed out. Applicability of screening in the developing world is considered. (Author/SBH)
