Description

Speech-Language Pathologists are known to provide intervention for children and adults with diverse abilities and diagnoses, but frequently refrain from referring for additional testing and in-depth diagnostic evaluations. This poster explains survey results about possible barriers to the SLP referral process and examines the differences between the barriers as they relate to both specific diagnoses (ASD, FASD, and ID) and as they relate to external vs. internal barriers.
