SAC Position Paper: on Early Identification of Speech & Language Disorders

Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC) supports a national, formalized and standardized strategy for the early identification of speech and language problems.

Such a strategy is essential to child development services and will benefit all the people of Canada. The early identification of speech and language problems is integral to prevention of associated problems in communication, literacy and cognition and is fundamental for lifelong learning and well-being. This paper demonstrates the necessity of a nationally established and supported plan for early identification of speech and language problems and offers specific recommendations for implementation.
