Abstract

Demands being placed on speech-language pathology (SLP) services are increasing. As a
result, SLPs must prioritize patients/clients who can benefit from therapy. Since no
priority rating scale exists for an adult neurological population, SLPs use outcome
measurement scales to manage their caseloads. However, these do not consider the
personal, environmental and social factors that might affect treatment. Using elements
from existing outcome measures, a priority rating scale for children and the ICF, an adult
priority rating scale was developed. The scale as well as data from face validity
evaluations from SLPs working in neurology will be presented.
