Abstract

The authors examine the psychodynamic and neuro-psycholinguistic problems related to language disorders in psychotic children. Study results indicate that impairment of pragmatic skills is the most relevant finding. Therefore, we applied the Prutting and Kirchner protocol to analyze pragmatic skills in a group of 10 children, aged 4.5-12 years, affected by early psychoses and in patients of a psychotherapeutical institution. The protocol was used with the specific intention of studying neuropsychiatric problems in children presenting specific neuropsychological disorders. Results show general impairment of verbal functioning in all subjects examined. Autistic children showed severe impairment in all three pragmatic aspects of language use: verbal, paralinguistic and non verbal aspects. On the contrary, children with disharmonic psychoses presented widely variations in language functioning. This protocol appears to be useful in determining profiles of individual communication capacities. Moreover, the repeatability of this protocol in the same subjects furnishes a very precise means for conducting longitudinal studies.
