Many Australian children in need lack access to SLPs

Jane Margaret McCormack and Sarah Elizabeth Verdon have published a paper mapping AEDC vulnerability against the location of paediatric speech-language pathologists (SLP) across Australia. The study, published in the International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, found many children vulnerable in the Language and Cognitive Development and Communication Skills and General Knowledge domains did not have access to a SLP. The study raises important questions about how best to deliver needed services.
