Fast forward to the new millennium…imagine having at your fingertips answers to the following questions:
  • How long does it typically take a child with a moderate language disorder to reach a level of independence?

  • How many units of treatment are typically provided to an adult with dysphagia to help them discontinue tube feeding and eat independently?

  • Does a timely evaluation by an audiologist favorably change the outcome for a patient with a hearing loss?

Knowing that we actually CAN get the answers to these questions is all the motivation we need to keep working to put the finishing touches on the National Outcomes Measurement System for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. The first component, adults receiving speech-language pathology services, will be ready in January 1998. In order for the NOMS to provide useful information, we will need a large number of patients in the database. That means we need YOU to help collect the data.
