For sample children 3 and over who have been given a diagnosis for a speech, swallowing, speech, or language problem, CVLDIAGLANG reports whether the child was given a diagnosis for a language problem.

Persons who answered affirmatively were then asked for the diagnosis or reason given; persons could report multiple causes. The causes for the language problems are reported in the following variables:

: hearing loss or deafness

: genetic syndrome

: intellectual disability

: Autism spectrum disorder

: developmental language-learning disorder

: head injury, traumatic brain injury

: other neurological problem
