Is a waitlist a thing where you work? 


For many (most?) places in the world, it is, due to a shortage of SLPs, limited resources for funded services, or both. Waiting lists mean hard choices, and we need to make sure we’re handling those choices in the fairest and most ethical way possible so that the kids who most (or most urgently) need our services get to the front of the line. One way to tackle service prioritization is to learn as much as we can about the factors that differentiate kids who will make progress on their own from ones whose errors are likely to persist.
