The following is the December 2016 issue of research reviews for pediatric and school-based SLPs, written by Meredith Harold, PhD, CCC-SLP.  Each month, Dr. Harold accesses the top 50 research journals in the field as determined by the Thompson-Reuters Impact Factor (for Linguistics & Education), SCImago (for Speech & Hearing), and h5-index (for Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology). Then, articles that are (a) relevant to pediatric and school-based SLPs’ daily practice, and (b) draw from strong evidence, are included in the monthly review. The research reviews summarize the most important clinical findings, then indicate additional resources to be found in the full article. These reviews are meant to be brief, informative, and—most importantly—keep you up-to-date on evidence-based practice.
