Whereas it is expected that graduate programs in speech-language pathology provide academic coursework on and clinical exposure to neurogenic cognitive and communicative disorders associated with stroke, traumatic brain injury, and dementing diseases, practicing clinicians have no doubt encountered cases in which other medical conditions have compromised cognition, communication, or both. Accordingly, the purpose of this issue of Perspectives is to increase understanding of four medical disorders and treatments that clinicians may less frequently encounter but that can still negatively affect brain functioning and consequently, lead to acquired cognitive-communicative impairments: brain tumors, medications that antagonize cognitive-communicative abilities, cancer and cancer treatments, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) and risk factors. Importantly, each of these less familiar causes of acquired brain dysfunction can affect the full spectrum of client ages, so this issue should prove informative to clinicians working in educational or medical settings.
