This issue of the Division 1 newsletter focuses on the growing population of children who meet the criteria of having chronic health conditions. This article lays the foundation and presents the rationale for the premise that this population is at increased risk for language learning disorders. These ideas are presented in the context of epidemiologic change. Three articles on specific diseases, each presenting a different associational principle, elaborate and support this lemma. Two articles discuss education and selected policy issues affecting service delivery. We present the position that from medical disease perspectives this population is heterogeneous; however, from language learning and educational perspectives, the members of the population are remarkably homogeneous.
