Speech-language pathologists, audiologists, other health professionals, and educators who work with children with hemophilia should know the language and learning characteristics of the population and the educationally significant conditions associated with the disease. Having a knowledge of both the acute characteristics and long-term conditions for which these children are at increased risk will help practitioners provide better services. The epidemiology of hemophilia can change over time, and new patterns must be taken into account for purposes of identification, treatment, and educational planning. This paper explores three subtopics of hemophilia which are of particular interest to those concerned with language and education: acute signs at school, a model for increased language disorders in the hemophiliac population, and projected changes in the epidemiology of hemophilia and their implications for practice.
