Alecia Koontz's comment, February 12, 6:02 AM
Researchers in Melbourne are conducting a study with 1900 children, and looking into the idea that those with autism used fewer gestures to communicate than those without autism. Speech pathologiest Carly Veness, who conducted the research, said that in autistic children between the ages of eight months and two years, there was little to no hand gestures. This research began in 2003 and it measured early developmental skills and behavior with 1900 children subject when they were only eight months old. By the time the children had turned seven years old, 45 of then were diagnosed with autism, or Aspergers, an autism spectrum disorder. Researchers were aware that communication and social skills were important for diagnosis, thus believed it was important to study those behaviors. To begin the tests, children took part in language and cognitive tests between 4 and 7 years old, and looking back at their data, the researchers found the autistic children gave fewer gestures at age two compared to everyone else, just as they believed.

Hannah 's curator insight, November 20, 2013 9:03 AM

This is an insightful article that explains the need for the measurement of productivity in Speech and Language Pathology.

Sometimes it is hard to measure productivity in a job that sees such slow progress in patients. Therefore, there must be other methods of measuring whether or not Speech and Language Pathologists actually do their work.

Overall, I was able to learn that there are many ways to measure efficiency in Speech and Language Pathology and that employers are always looking for more ways for their pathologists to work honestly and efficiently. Personally, this article shows me that speech language pathology is a career that has a lot of blurred lines, which could be overwhelming or confusing.
