The Intelligibility in Context Scale (ICS) is a parent report questionnaire for assessing children's speech intelligibility. The aim of this study is to compare parental and clinical assessment of children’s speech intelligibility of participants with various difficulties. Clinicians or therapists were divided in two groups: those who conduct rehabilitation in kindergarten groups (GR) and those who conduct individual rehabilitation (IR). A total of 131 preschoolers with speech sound disorders (SSD; n = 106) and hearing impairment (HI; n = 25) were recruited. Parents and clinicians completed the ICS individually. Parental responses were consistent with responses of clinicians. Mean scores showed that speech of children with SSD is more intelligible than speech of children with hearing impairment. However, significant difference between the two groups of children was established only in parental responses. Results from Reynell Developmental Language Scales - RDLS, intelligibility assessment, duration of rehabilitation and results of a test of cognitive abilities were taken from children's medical records. ICS scores were in correlation with children's scores on RDLS and with estimation of intelligibility. Only the answers of IR showed correlation of speech intelligibility with duration of rehabilitation. Correlation of intelligibility and cognitive abilities was not established. Short survey among clinicians in order to determine potential usage of ICS in clinical setting was also conducted. Results indicate that cooperation between clinicians and parents is important, however, parent report questionnaires are rarely used. ICS is positively evaluated by therapists, but answers indicate that additional research will be necessary to prove reliability and usefulness of this questionnaire.
