This issue of Perspectives focuses on mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Speech-language pathologists across the country are facing unique challenges providing care to our wounded service members returning from military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, also referred to as the Global War on Terror (GWOT). The majority of service members have sustained concussions or mTBI from blasts and other combat-related trauma, causing cognitive-communicative deficits that may be exacerbated by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other psychological and physical health concerns. Stated within the ASHA scope of practice and practice guidelines are the roles and responsibilities of speech-language pathologists in identifying, diagnosing, and treating individuals with cognitive-communication disorders. The focus of the three papers in this issue of Perspectives is the evaluation and treatment of service members returning from combat with mTBI.
