Abstract

The presence of EEG anomalies in between seizures in children with specific language impairment (SLI) could shape a functional disconnection between cortex areas as a consequence of the paroxysmal activity, characterized by a delay in reaction time and attention deficiency with secondary involvement in language reception. For this reason, despite the absence of symptoms of major importance like seizures, antiepileptic drugs and speech therapy can bring improvements in cognitive functions like in the clinical case we describe and whose results are really encouraging.
