Changes in demographic and economic trends, as well as reforms in health care and education, have encouraged speech-language pathologists to expand the service delivery options they offer. Practitioners are searching for service delivery models that promote clients' functional skills, are cost-effective, and reflect accountability and efficacy. There is increasing demand for models that incorporate team decision-making and participation. This article provides clinicians with a framework for decision-making and service delivery by encouraging speech-language pathologists and their colleagues to consider the unique combination of providers, activities, and contexts (PACs) necessary to meet the specific needs of each individual with a communication disorder.
