Journal of Communication Disorders and Assistive Technology

ISSN: 2576-3997

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. Recent advances in communication disorders and assistive technology have transformed the landscape of speech and hearing rehabilitation. These technological innovations have enabled individuals with speech and hearing impairments to communicate more effectively and independently, improving their quality of life and social interactions. Some examples of assistive technologies used in communication disorders include hearing aids, cochlear implants, speech-generating devices, and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices. These tools, coupled with advancements in teletherapy and tele-audiology, have expanded access to speech and hearing services to underserved communities and remote areas. As research in this field continues to evolve, we can expect to see further advancements that will enhance the lives of individuals with communication disorders.
