There is little debate that in the past several years we have seen considerable change in the way that services are delivered to those with neurogenic communication disorders. Some of the changes that have occurred have been the result of advances in clinical management, research, and health care in general. However, many of the changes that we have experienced occur directly as the result of altered patterns of referral and funding for our patients. In general, there has been a trend away from an “open” fee-for-service approach to a more consolidated managed approach to both referral and funding. In many cases, this has resulted in fewer patients referred, with reduced resources for supporting them.
