Speech and Language Disorders: What’s Genetics Got to Do with It?
Have you ever suspected that a client’s speech or language disorder may be running in the family? So many of the communication disorders we work with every day as speech-langage pathologists (SLPs) are influenced by genetics, and sometimes SLPs may be the first professional to notice this. While there’s still so much to discover, we’re learning more and more about how genes influence the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. This course will explore how changes to our genes can influence communication behavior via changes to the brain. We’ll review some of what we’re learning about nonsyndromic communication disorders that are influenced by genetics, such as developmental language disorder (DLD) and speech sound disorders (SSD). We’ll also address what action we as SLPs might take in light of genetic knowledge.
