We studied clinical, neuropsychological and EEG characteristics of 94 non epileptic children (mean age 6.8 yrs; range 3.3-11.5 yrs) affected with developmental language impairment. 46% of the children experienced paroxysmal activity (PA) in sleep EEG. We correlated these abnormalities with the different categories of ICD-10 and Allen and Rapin classification. In particular PA in the dominant hemisphere is prevalent in subjects with receptive developmental dysphasia.
