The purpose of this study was to examine speech-language pathologists’ (SLPs’) perceptions of both the nature and treatment of time-awareness deficits among elementary school-aged children with language impairments. Because an understanding of temporal concepts is critical to various domains of learning, this study is useful for expanding the literature regarding these deficits. A sample of 62 randomly selected SLPs completed an online survey that inquired about the prevalence, identification, and effective treatment of time-related difficulties. The results indicated that elementary school-aged children frequently struggle with a variety of temporal concepts, and that there is a lack of resources regarding time-awareness among this population. These results suggest a need for more research and materials that are specifically geared to address time concepts.
