Grossman, Fred M.; Franklin, N. Kathleen
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v19 n2 p153-59 Apr 1988
The study examined the effects of a child's sex and socioeconomic status on referral, assessment, and decision-making by presenting hypothetical cases to 38 undergraduate speech-language pathology students for evaluation. Results suggested that some referral and assessment decisions may be biased solely by the child's sex and socioeconomic status. (Author/VW)
