Clinical Management of Language Impairment in Children from a Historical Perspective : A Follow-Up Study (English)
One of the largest work areas for speech and language pathologists is intervention for children with speech and language disorders. The purpose of the present study was to describe and analyze the clinical management of language impairment in children by studying and comparing medical records and literature from the years 2000 and 2009. The present study is a sequel to two previously published papers by Christina Samuelsson (1997; 1999), in which medical records and literature from the 1920-, 60- and 70’s were studied and a paper by Helén Sämfors (2001), in which the years 1985 and 1995 were studied. The medical records used in the present study came from a medical ward for speech and language pathology at a university hospital in Sweden.
The results showed that significantly more children were referred to the clinic for speech and language problems in 2009 than in 2000, and more children were treated for their impairments. Also, the speech and language pathologists were more detailed when documenting anamnesis, status and therapy, and they devoted more time for investigating the children’s impairments in 2009. In terms of literature, a development is observable concerning bilingualism, prosody, pragmatics and Swedish research regarding intervention for children with language impairments.
