Developmental language disorders in bilingual children

Abstract

So far, little attention has been devoted to the study of developmental language disorders (DLD) in bilingual children, and often the condition of bilingualism has been considered a con-cause of developmental language disorders by the few anecdotal studies carried out on this issue. In the present study five cases are described which clearly show that bilingualism is not responsible for developmental language disorders. In fact, the need is stressed for more systematic studies in the future with the same standardized tests being applied to all the languages the children know in order to make a diagnosis of developmental language disorders and plan correct rehabilitation. Development of appropriate teaching methodologies should be given special attention with a view to plan foreign language teaching for these children.
