Recent investigations of childrens' developing articulation abilities indicate substantially earlier ages for speech-sound acquisition as compared to traditional norms. Speech-language pathologists in Oregon were asked which developmental norms they used when assessing articulation development. The majority refer to Templin's 1957 investigation instead of more recent norms. Those respondents who did not use developmental norms reported other factors and sources as useful references when determining articulation status. Clinical implications of these findings are discussed.
