This volume is dedicated to the field of Specific Language Impairment (SLI), addressing important research questions, including: the interrelation of genetic and cognitive profiles of individuals with SLI; the comorbidity issue and clinical boundaries between SLI and other developmental disorders; cross-linguistic manifestations of SLI; and theory-motivated therapy approaches to individuals with SLI. This volume brings together researchers with different scientific backgrounds and research disciplines, challenging current points of view and offering new perspectives on issues of SLI and developmental disorders.

Table of Contents
“This volume addresses key issues regarding specific language impairment (SLI) from a multi-disciplinary as well as multi-linguistic perspective. A must read for those interested in understanding the interactions between, genetics, cognitive and linguistic factors in the characterisation of SLI, its association with other developmental disorders such as dyslexia and ADHD and how this information can move the field towards theory-driven intervention.”
“I have recommended Specific Language Impairment: Current trends in research for our speech-language pathology students at the University of Tours (and I rarely recommend books that are not in French); this book will also definitely be useful to linguistics graduate students, as well as to all colleagues in the field of psycholinguistics. What I believe to be so useful is the scope of the issues which are addressed, both theoretical and clinical, and I particularly liked the up-to-date coverage (in terms of both literature reviews and reports of important new results) of "interface" pathologies with SLI. This volume is a significant contribution, a veritable showcase of current knowledge on the condition we call specific language impairment.”
