Abstract

Information regarding the prevalence of communication disorders is important for planning and evaluating service delivery. Multiple studies have investigated the prevalence of communication disorders in Australia and throughout the world, with varying results. This article reviewed the most recent Australian research investigating prevalence rates in children, and found a range of estimates, from 0.12% (voice) to 20.8% (expressive language). Results varied according to the communication disorders being investigated, definition of disorders, mode of identification, age and number of participants.
