The primary linguistic difficulties of individuals with specific language impairment (SLI) have been addressed in detail in previous research. Recently, several studies have also reported the presence of associated comorbidities in children with SLI such as memory disorders, motoric deficits, dyslexia, ADHD, auditory processing disorders, and psychosocial disorders. The aim of this paper is to highlight the issues in SLI associated with memory disorders, motoric deficits, and dyslexia. This is a literature review. Short-term memory and working memory are commonly affected in children with SLI. In addition, those children exhibit deficits in fine and gross motor skills both simple and complex. The risk of dyslexia is associated with language delays and speech difficulties in the preschool years. SLI is a multifaceted disorder with both linguistic and nonlinguistic features including memory disorders, motoric deficits, and dyslexia.
