This paper documents the recovery of five children with acquired aphasia from acute onset for 2 years. The children, who were aged between 6 and 15 years at onset, were regularly assessed using comprehensive language tests in order to establish detailed profiles of their recovery in relation to the presenting neurology. Language Acquisition and Language Recovery in Developmental Dysphasia and Acquired Childhood Aphasia With Paola Cipriani, Anna Maria Chilosi, Piero Bottari This chapter presents a rough outline of morphosyntactic development in six Italian children followed from about 19 to 36 months of age.

Diagnosis in acquired childhood aphasia (ACA) is a multi‐stage process. After the medical condition has stabilised, the diagnostic evaluation requires careful assessment to establish a profile in the differential diagnosis of listening, understanding speaking, and gesture. What is Apraxia? The term apraxia is used to describe the inability to perform particular purposeful actions despite normal muscle strength and tone. People who suffer from apraxia are usually unable to perform common expressive gestures on request, such as waving good-bye, beckoning, or saluting, or to pantomime drinking, brushing teeth, etc. Apraxia may also affect oral, non-speech movements.

Acquired childhood aphasia is rare but has important conceptual implications for developmental neuropsychology. The last 15 years have seen major changes in their clinical description, which have led to the awareness that the syndromes in acquired childhood aphasia are more similar to the syndromes in adult aphasia than previously thought.

Description: Acquired childhood aphasia (ACA) refers to the language impairments that may follow a brain lesion sustained after the age of acquisition of first sentences. The CAAST is designed to identify language disturbances in brain- damaged children in the three to seven year old age group who acquire ACA following accident or illness.

One of the most fascinating problems in Behavioural Neurology is the question of the cerebral organization for language during childhood.

Acquired aphasia in children, albeit rare, is a unique circumstance in which to study the relations between language and the brain during cerebral maturation. Its study further contributes to our understanding of the recovery processes and brain plasticity.

Its study further contributes to our understanding of the recovery processes and brain plasticity during childhood. With chapters containing up to 50 percent new coverage, this book provides a thorough update of the latest research and development in the area of acquired aphasia.

Coverage includes the symptoms of aphasia, assessment, neuropsychology, the specific linguistic deficits associated with aphasia, related disorders, recovery, and rehabilitation. Acquired Childhood Aphasia. Acquired Childhood Aphasia is a language impairment caused by damage to the parts of the brain that control language, typically the left half of the brain.

Brain damage in children results most frequently from a traumatic brain injury, but can also result from brain tumors or seizure disorders. Congenital aphasia is caused prenatal or perinatal whereas acquired aphasia always occurs postnatal.

3 The focus of this paper will be on acquired aphasia in childhood. It is defined as the “deterioration in language performance as a result of cerebral affections.” 4 Thus, acquired aphasia is the reduction or loss of language functions that.

Acquired childhood aphasia is rare but has important conceptual implications for developmental neuropsychology. The last 15 years have seen major changes in their clinical description, which have led to the awareness that the syndromes in acquired childhood aphasia are more similar to the syndromes in adult aphasia than previously thought.

Course and prognosis of the acquired aphasia in childhood (30% longterm difficulties) depend on several factors like etiology and extension of the lesion, the development of the functional hemispheric dominance for language and the initial recovery velocity after the symptoms appeared.
