Abstract

This chapter will first identify some popular “broadband” measures that are used to screen for problems across different areas of speech and language development. These screens are commonly used by pediatricians and other primary care providers including family practice physicians and family nurse practitioners at well-child visits as well as NICU settings for surveillance of potential problems in language, motor, (pre-)academics, self-help, behavior, and social and emotional health. In light of the positive consequences of early identification, our aim must be to prevent, detect, and intervene with children with communication disorders as early as possible.
