Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the use of Self-Anchored Rating Scales (SARS) in providing family-centered speech-language early intervention services. SARS were used with families receiving familycentered speech-language early intervention services at the Northern Illinois University Speech and Hearing Clinic. Following completion of six sessions of speech-language treatment, interviews were conducted with parents with whom SARS had been used and the clinicians who served them. The objective of these interviews was to examine both parent and clinician experiences regarding the use of SARS. Results of this study indicated that both parents and clinicians found SARS to be a valuable adjunct to the therapy process.
