Abstract

Language acquisition in children with Down's syndrome is influenced by many disabling factors directly connected with the syndrome (mental, motor, psychomotor, behaviouristic, etc.). It is not always, however, that hearing disability consequences are given due weight. This disability has been found in over 70% of examined subjects. Out of the 120 Down's syndrome children coming under their observation in the two years 1993, 1994 at the E.N.T. Division and the Medical Genetics Service of the Children's Hospital 'Bambino Gesu' (Rome), the authors chose two homogeneous groups, each of 15 patients, differing only in that one group had hearing deficit and the other did not. Evaluation of linguistic competence achieved by each group was made. The authors found that the hypacusic children did not, in any of the cases examined, have a language proper to the mental age, while 33% of the normoacusic children did. The authors consider, therefore, that an early identification and treatment of transmissive hearing loss would be a worthy support in the treatment of Down's syndrome children's linguistic disabilities.
