SLCN, HRQOL, DLD AND MENTAL HEALTH

 

LANGUAGE AND LITERACY IN YOUNG PEOPLE is investigating SLCN and HRQOL as well as DLD and mental health.

 

The term Speech Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) refers to the full range of communication difficulties, including difficulties with hearing, language, speech, voice, stuttering, and pragmatics. The impact of any given communication difficulty on an individual is dependent on their own context, however the presence of SLCN increases the risk that an individual will have a reduced Health Related Quality of Life (HRQL)
