Demographic, economic, and technological trends are likely to reshape educational, clinical, and research programs in speech-language pathology over the next three decades. The changes could be dramatic. These trends should be taken into account in planning the future role of speech-language pathology in health care and education. Critical elements in such planning include fostering behavioral and biomolecular research pertinent to human communication, promoting research on intervention efficacy, and developing a technology and knowledge base that are central to clinical practice.
