Additional Information: Seminar Abstract: Specific language impairment (SLI) is a neurodevelopmental failure to acquire language normally despite adequate opportunity and environment in the absence of explanatory neurological factors. SLI has a strong genetic component and shares etiological factors with disorders such as autism. Yet, those common genetic factors defy simple additive genetic models.
