The epidemiology of 1090 referrals to a mainstream paediatric speech and language therapy department over fifteen months is discussed, in relation to referral information and initial detailed assessment. Clients are classified by their main presenting difficulty and by their degree of severity. This information will inform clinicians of the nature of the caseload of a typical inner city service which will, in turn, aid service planning.
