Social Communication Disorders in School-Age Children

A social communication disorder may be a distinct diagnosis or may be associated with other conditions (e.g., ASD, SLI, etc.), some of which have a known etiology and some of which are idiopathic. The causes of social communication disorders are often defined in terms of these specific conditions. Links to disorder- and condition-specific Practice Portal pages will be included as those pages are developed.
