An error occurred in the article "The Effect of Duplicated and Unduplicated Child Count on the Prevalence of Speech-Impaired Children" by Lois D. McDermott, in the April 1981 issue of LSHSS. In the Discussion section on page 119, three sentences should read

Unduplicated counts will not allow the Office of Education to determine just how well that goal is being met. Further, if full services are to be provided, only duplicated counts will provide the information about personnel needs that is necessary for appropriate distribution of training monies . . . . Professional groups should strongly encourage the collection of duplicated counts at the local and state levels or collect those data independently to assure that both the services they provide and unmet services are accurately represented. [Italics added for emphasis.]

rather than

Duplicate ... unduplicated ... unduplicated ...

The two terms are used correctly in the rest of the article.
