Journal of Communication Disorders and Assistive Technology

ISSN: 2576-3997


jcdat Communication entails receiving, understanding, and expressing information, feelings, and ideas. Communication disorders range from hearing impairments to speech disorders, to language disorders and affect all ages, geographical areas, social classes, and ethnic origins. The ability to communicate effectively is an essential skill in modern society. People with communication disorders can have negative social effects as they cannot effectively communicate their ideas and personalities to others. Assistive technology, also known as AT, is any tool, whether high tech or low tech, that supplements a person’s inability to perform tasks (such as communicate) through the application of technology. With the rapid developments in assistive technology, people with communication disorders are able to communicate more meaningfully and participate more fully in their daily lives. ‘ Journal of Communication Disorders and Assistive Technology’ primarily focuses on publishing topics on communication disorders, prevention, early intervention, and the role of assistive technology in supporting people with communication disabilities. ‘Journal of Communication Disorders and Assistive Technology’ welcomes scholars across the globe to submit their original research papers fulfilling the requisite criterion. The journal also accepts review, short communication, editorial, expert review and letter to the editor.

All the manuscripts published by ‘Journal of Communication Disorders and Assistive Technology’ undergo rapid, quality, and quick review processing by eminent editorial and review teams maintaining high standards and ethics of publishing.
