Although communication deficits associated with damage to the right cerebral hemisphere (RHD) do not receive as much attention as more obvious speech and language problems such as dysarthria, apraxia of speech, and aphasia, speech-language pathologists are well aware of the significant effects RHD can have on communication and daily function. This issue of Perspectives is dedicated to current topics in RHD. Deficits associated with RHD are numerous and varied, and it was difficult to decide which topics to cover. Those chosen represent theoretical underpinnings that should inform treatment decisions when evidence is not available (e.g., comprehension deficits), reviews of disorders for which treatment studies are available (i.e., neglect and aprosodia), and effects of early RHD on development of cognitive-communication processes.
