Prevalence of studies of speech, language, and hearing disorders do not yet adequately define the frequency of specific communication disorders in children. Such data are needed to provide a strong rationale for funding of research on the effectiveness of our interventions. Establishing the effectiveness of our treatments is critical to continued support of our services. This article emphasizes the importance of collecting prevalence data and of measuring both the short-term and long-term impact of our interventions in the schools.
