Reflections on Improving Clinical Practice
This clinical forum challenges you to consider your own clinical practices and to take a serious look at axioms that may have been influencing your clinical decisions and processes for years or decades. Drawing on scientific evidence grounded in clinical practice questions, the commentaries in this journal self-study assert that current intervention services for children and adolescents who have language and learning disorders could be improved. The authors translate their findings into clinically relevant insights for you to put into practice to promote better intervention outcomes.
