We compared neuropsychological features of 30 children with learning disorder divided into 3 groups: idiopathic epilepsy (IE), CSWS, specific learning disorder (SLD). Their cognitive profiles were similar, except for visuomotor difficulties which were prevalent in IE compared to SLD. A relationship between prevalent EEG focus and cognitive profile was clear in few cases. The CSWS group was less impaired in writing. Learning disorders seem to be a common phenotype of heterogeneous conditions.
