This thesis entitled: Access to Speech Therapy for children - Early Identification of Speech Disorders, Care Process and Obstacles from the Parent's Perspective, deals with the care process for linguistic abnormalities of Viennese children aged 0-6 years. Previous studies show the importance of early initiation of therapy. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to discuss which elements in health care and education systems are sufficient and which are missing. Using questionnaires to parents of affected children, resources and difficulties in the care process (from preventive measures for symptom identification to information and counseling services to organizational and socio-demographic data) were collected via three different providers of logopedic services. It has been shown that the family is a great resource and that sociodemographic aspects have little impact on early care. However, a lack of low-threshold information and counseling services became apparent. The logopedic screening in Viennese early education system is not offered blanket, but questioned parents clearly advocate. Consequently, the current quantitative logopaedic support in kindergarten settings should be questioned and in further studies the optimal scope and framework of a speech therapy screening should be discussed.
