Norbury CF, McCartney E, Slonims V, Dockrell JE & Ebbels SH (2019) Public health approaches still have room for individualized services: response to commentaries on 'Evidence-based pathways to intervention for children with language disorders'. International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders, 54 (1), pp. 28-29. https://doi.org/10.1111/1460-6984.12436
First paragraph: We welcome these commentaries and an open discussion about SLT roles in improving the lives of children with language disorder. Our motivation comes in part from our lived experiences of situations like those above, where there is a perception from schools and indeed families (cf. Bercow 10 Years On) that the needs of children with language disorder are not being met. We focus our response on three key issues that arise from these thought-provoking comments.
