Introduction to Special Issue: Speech-Language Therapy Services in the Arab World and the Diaspora
This special issue of the Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics sheds light on speech and language therapy services provided to Arabic-speaking individuals in the Arab World and beyond. Within the Arab World, the contexts are so different and diverse mainly because of the difference in linguistic and economic situations in many of these countries. Sometimes, even within the same country, there are major variations (the example of Morocco described by Boueddine and Boulahna in this issue). Despite this diversity and variation, the present issue aims to explore service delivery practices in the Arab World and the Diaspora (represented by North America) by bringing together practitioners to promote greater communication and collaboration to better serve the individuals who need these services.
