Characterization of the diagnostic profile and flow of a Speech-Language Pathology service in child language within a public hospital
CONCLUSION: It was prevalent the diagnosis of language delay in male children with ages between 0 and 6 years and 11 months. It was identified an external flow coming from nearby cities and an internal flow (outpatient). Part of the demand was absorbed by the institution’s Speech-Language Pathology Service, and part was in the waiting list or was counter-referred to their units of origin for follow-up.
