Focus on the Outcomes of Communication Under Six (FOCUS©) is a clinical tool designed to evaluate change in communicative-participation in preschool children. ‘Communicative participation’ is the child’s communication and interaction in “real world” situations at home, school, or in the community (Eadie et al., 2006).
The FOCUS© is a valid, reliable, responsive treatment outcome measure that captures ‘real world’ changes following speech and language treatment. The FOCUS© links speech and language treatment to the child’s ability to communicate and participate in their world. There are two versions of the measure, one designed for parents and one for clinicians. The items on both versions are the same.
