Activity Steps

Description

Note: ASHA CEUs cannot be reported to ASHA unless your ASHA member number is included in your profile.

The author explains that measuring the outcomes of SLP interventions is key to deciding when to dismiss children from intervention services. In addition, collection of this outcome data allows the professional to identify progress and to make changes to the course of treatment when there is an inadequate response. The author outlines the use of General Language Performance Measures (GLPMs) to assess outcomes. Conclusions include that further research is needed to evaluate both the reliability of GLPMs and the validity of using the GLPMs to measure treatment outcomes.
