Abstract
Speech and language therapy publications are meant to communicate to the scientific and
practice community as well as policy-makers new developments (in theories, research and
practice). The aim of this paper is to find out the speech and language therapy techniques
used in the developed and developing worlds. The information will throw light on the kinds of
techniques used and advice on future development in the area. A computer-aided electronic
search was made using Ebscohost database. Scientific articles published within 2011 and
2016 in the area of speech and language therapy were sought in three representative
developed as well as three developing countries. Results show that from the publications
from the developing countries, it is apparent that those dealing with the speech and language
problems are more occupied with issues of assessment than with therapy. In the developed
countries, they are concerned with therapy techniques that will suit their present realities
(and not just assessment alone). It is therefore recommended that those dealing with speech
and language problems in the developing countries should be properly trained in the art of
speech-language therapy.
