Living Life with a Communication Disorder
Communication disorders are wide ranging and extend across the entire lifespan. However, research into speech and language impairment has only recently started to focus on the impact of these for individuals and their families. Living life with a communication disorder is never straightforward, and we hope that this issue brings together and highlights some of the leading work in this area.
The King's Speech and Stuttering Research
Stuttering was a much talked about issue in 2011, largely due to the huge success of the film ‘The King’s Speech’. Inspired by this film, the editors of IJLCD put together a selection of recent IJLCD articles on the theme of stuttering. They chose only recent studies and aimed for articles that highlight the richness of stuttering research that takes place around the world.
