Trastornos del Desarrollo y Logopedia (2009) Trastornos del Desarrollo y Logopedia (2009)

Los trastornos del desarrollo constituyen una de las problemáticas más habituales en el ámbito de la Logopedia, tal y como reconocen de manera explícita la Asociación Española de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, y la American Speech-Hearing Association. En este sentido, las competencias que recientemente se han atribuido a Logopedia como disciplina regulada de Ciencias de la Salud reconocen la necesidad de que los logopedas conozcan estos trastornos del desarrollo, sepan evaluarlos, y sepan intervenir sobre ellos. Sin embargo, la información disponible en español sobre los trastornos del desarrollo está considerablemente dispersa en distintos manuales, lo que dificulta su acceso.

The MMR vaccine: public health, private fears

Description

A decade ago, the possibility of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism hit the media. Fear of the vaccine spread rapidly and, despite an almost unanimous consensus that the claim was unfounded, still persists today. In this unit, we’ll examine why this controversy took on such a life of its own and why parents still agonise about the vaccine.
