The fundamental mission of Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools (LSHSS) is to advance the research and practice base that supports clinical services to children in schools. The very broadness of this mission is both a strength and a challenge.
From a positive perspective, the very breadth of the mission means that LSHSS is concerned with applications of knowledge. Ingram (1998)  recently defined three types of applied research that are meaningful for the journal’s charge: (1) descriptive research whose long-term implications may lead to determining developmental stages, normative standards, or new and effective intervention methods; (2) clinical studies with direct relevance for services; and (3) clinician-developed assessment or intervention approaches, which also have a direct relationship to the everyday contexts in which services are available.
