SIG 16 Perspectives Vol. 13, No. 2, August 2012

SLPs are faced with meeting the needs of children with a vast array of disorders, diseases, and syndromes. Some of these conditions are caused by maltreatment or exposure to neurotoxins. Understanding the underlying problems and possible effects is an essential step to providing appropriate services to children and their families. This issue of Perspectives focuses on the effects of environmental toxins on speech and language development, as well as genetic causes or contributions to communication disorders.
