A national multi-disciplinary audit showed variation in SLT practice on the decision to review pre-school children or place them on waiting lists following initial assessment. Audit evidence suggests some reasons for these differences and contributing factors are illustrated by case history examples. Current health-care policies encourage practitioners to make decision-making transparent to consumers but this process is problematic if there is a lack of evidence to support principled choice. An outline is presented to enable therapists to gather their own evidence for review outcomes in daily practice.
