Did you know that about 20-30 percent of children affected by ADHD struggle with language? Or that up to 50 percent of students with Language Disorder also have ADHD? And that deficits in executive functioning impact both disorders?

Language disorders often share some of the same characteristics of attention disorders and can even be mistaken for one another. When this happens it's very common for students to not receive effective interventions or educational supports.

Linda E. Spencer, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, is a practicing speech-language pathologist who has worked in public schools, colleges and universities. She has maintained a private practice in speech-language pathology for more than 20 years. Dr. Spencer has provided evaluations and direct intervention to children and adults with a variety of speech, language, voice and communication challenges. Currently, Dr. Spencer provides service as an independent evaluator of students with communication, speech and language disorders that affect their acquisition of educational and social skills.
