A review of the history of medical intervention reveals that the approaches to medical treatment have passed through several distinct phases during the past 200 years. The 19th century has become known as the Era of Diagnosis. Indeed, many of the conditions, illnesses and diseases associated with progressive communication disorders were first described in the 1800s. The 20th century is known as the Era of Interventions distinguished by the rapid development of pharmacological, surgical, behavioral, and prosthetic interventions for individuals with a wide range of illness and conditions. It is expected that the 21st century will be known as the Era of Clinical Decision-Making. A variety of activities will characterize this era. These include the development of standard intervention protocols, the staging of interventions, the completion of various types of outcome studies, and the application of evidence-based intervention practices.
