Language and Communication Disorders in Adolescents

This clinical forum, first published in October 2012, discusses the state of research in adolescent language disorders. The authors describe the considerable progress that has been made in enhancing the spoken and written language skills of young people with language and communication disorders in academic, social, emotional, and vocational domains. The articles then explore the implications and challenges for future research and practice and identify specific areas in which researchers and clinicians need to continue building the evidence base.
