The current model of the profession providing intervention for children with developmental language disorders (DLD) in Israel developed based on a dual medical model of hearing (audiology) and speech and language pathology. The name of the profession is a communication disorder clinician (CDC) inferring both audiology and speech-language. The first Department of Communication Disorders was founded in 1967 at Tel-Aviv University within the Faculty of Medicine and all programmes since then are within schools of health sciences (Kishon-Rabin, 2016). In the current chapter, we used this local term focusing on the responsibility of CDCs in their work with children with DLD.
