Child Language Teaching and Therapy board meeting

Overnight I attended the Child Language Teaching and Therapy (CLTT) board meeting (via teleconference, since the meeting was held in London). CLTT currently has an impact factor of 1.093 and is ranked Q2, 18th out of 39 titles for Education-Special and 50th of 181 titles for Linguistics*. There has been an increase in downloads since 2015; which, according to the publishers is not typical for all of their journals. The top downloaded article for the past year was: Does reading to infants benefit their cognitive development at 9-months-old? An investigation using a large birth cohort survey.
