Many communicatively disordered preschool children are served in Head Start. The Head Start performance standards are conspicuously void of specific information regarding management of service to these children. In the present article, a management system is developed that is designed to aid the communication disorders specialist in diagnosis, case load selection, and service delivery in Head Start programs. Three priority levels are established that are consistent with the Head Start definition of a communication disorder and with Head Start program philosophy.
