Prevalence studies of co-occurring emotional/behavioral problems and language problems suggest that there is substantial overlap among these populations of children. Literature is reviewed that suggests that children with co-occurring problems may not be receiving the comprehensive service delivery programs they need. The role of language in emotional/behavioral regulation and social interaction is reviewed and implications for speechlanguage pathology relative to language assessment, intervention, and counseling of parents and other professionals are discussed.
