Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Aphasia is a communication impairment which can affect all four language modalities: speaking, comprehension, reading and writing. Aphasia is most often an acquired disorder owing to brain injury. It is common after a stroke; however, it can also be caused by traumatic brain injury or tumour, and in some children, it develops without obvious cause.

In this Special Issue, we aim to collect articles on aphasia and its impact on children and adolescents’ educational and social development and their quality of life, drawing together the latest research progress on this important topic.

For this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit original research articles and systematic reviews that focus on aphasia-related topics in childhood and adolescence. We would also appreciate it if you could forward this to your team members and colleagues who may also be interested in the topic.

Thank you for your consideration. Please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.

Dr. Becky Moss
Guest Editor
