When doing research in Communication Disorders there are a variety of sources available to you. The first step is selecting a topic and figuring out what types of sources of information you will need to use for your research.
If you need peer reviewed articles, you will want to start with a database. If you need background information, a good starting point would be a subject encyclopedia.
