Children with speech sound disorders of unclear origin form the largest group of pediatric cases in speech and language pathology. Today, in German-speaking countries, a wide range of assessment processes and tools to diagnose these children are available to speech therapists. This paper aims to describe the diagnostic process and to discuss the objectives of the different tools and the extent to which they agree with current knowledge. Furthermore, phonological acquisition and diagnosis of speech sound disorders in the special context of multilingual children will be discussed.
