Speech and language disorders after TBI in children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Severe head traumas in children generally cause associated deficits of verbal communication and language, and they also influence later development of cognitive and pragmatic functions. To practically deal with these severe communication deficits, children who suffered traumatic brain injury (TBI) are to undergo a systematic assessment of residual communication and language skills. Only an appropriate assessment of cognitive and linguistic deficits and their influence on learning skills allows a specific rehabilitation treatment and planning of appropriate curricula.
