As a paediatrician specialising in neurodevelopmental disorders, I regularly turn to the IJLCD for up to date research studies and reviews in speech, language and communication disorders in children which have both theoretical and practical application to my work and the families that I see.
For authors, the IJLCD provides quality and timely peer review, openness to new ideas and research, and it is disseminated widely throughout the international community. Readers are therefore exposed to the work of some of the top international researchers in the field.
As someone who studies childhood language disorders across different languages, I rely on the International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders as a major source of information. This outlet is also provides me with information about outcomes of children with language impairment that is difficult to find elsewhere.
