Abstract: This listing of disorders represents the diagnoses of the children of families who are registered with the MUMS (Mothers United for Moral Support) National Parent-to-Parent Network. After each named disorder, a number in parentheses indicates the number of children in the MUMS group with that specific disorder or condition. An asterisk after the disorder name means that there is a national or international support group for that specific disorder or related disorders. The disorders are listed alphabetically and some appear under more than one medical name. It is MUMS' hope that by matching families, parents can mutually support one another emotionally, exchange valuable medical information they have gathered, and alleviate the feelings of being alone. Among some of the communication disorders related conditions, the listing lists aphasia, cleft lip and palate, craniofacial anomalies, deafness, dystonia, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hemifacial microsomia, Landau-Kleffner Syndrome, oral-facial-digital Syndrome, tinnitus, vocal cord paralysis, and Waardenburg Syndrome.

Language: English. Abstract: This brochure reviews the typical changes in communication abilities that can accompany aging. The brochure emphasizes that knowing about speech, language, and hearing disorders can prevent or reduce the impact of any losses and enhance the ability to continue a happy and healthy life. The brochure offers facts about aging and hearing loss, including the statistics of hearing loss, its typical causes, and the impact of hearing loss on everyday life. The brochure then reviews the same type of information for speech and language disorders, including aphasia (reduced understanding of language), dysarthria (a nervous system of muscle disorder that makes speech hard for others to understand), apraxia of speech (difficulty coordinating the muscles of speech), cognitive communication impairments, laryngectomy (removal of the larynx, or voice box), and dysphagia (swallowing disorder). The brochure concludes by encouraging readers who have concerns about speech language or swallowing impairments to consult a speech language pathologist for an evaluation and appropriate recommendations. The brochure briefly summarizes the role of audiologists and speech language pathologists, and how to find an appropriate certified professional. The contact information for the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) is provided. Subject Category: Speech. Language. Hearing. Descriptors: Aging. Aged. Communication Disorders.
