Summary
COI synopsis: Improved communications are the axles on which the wheels of progress turn. But in an age of television from the moon, there are still areas on earth where communications fail. This issue examines a few of the communication gaps - and the way they’re being bridged. What use is all the technology of communication when for some even speech is impossible? But recent discoveries that speech problems can be rooted in a failure to use and understand the space around us have had dramatic results for some language disordered children.
