Abstract

 Speech - Language Pathologists (SLPs) have shown keen interest in childhood language disorders for more than 40 years. It has become a common scenario today to find that children experience pressure during language development. In addition, a rapid increase in the number of communication disorders in children during the recent times is threatening. Although this condition has gained popularity and understanding in the west, it is yet to attain complete awareness in the Indian context. The aim of this article is to facilitate understanding of these disorders among the health professionals and public to favor early identification and intervention of these children in Indian conditions.

Keywords: Childhood Language Disorders; Early Identification and Intervention ; SLPs.
