When it comes to specific language impairment, diagnostic criteria and terminology are anything but clear. And that hurts communication about the disorder among professionals and researchers, impedes children’s access to services, and keeps research from moving forward.
So the International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders focuses its current special issue on the pressing need to reach clarity and consensus about SLI diagnosis and terminology. Two lead articles, one from Dorothy Bishop and one from Sheena Reilly and colleagues, investigate various strategies and pros and cons for different terminology. These are followed by a series of short commentaries, to which Bishop and Reilly respond.
Readers may offer their own responses and share their points of view on the journal’s discussion site.
