Language disorders in children are one of the most frequent causes of
difficulties in communication, social interaction, learning and
academic achievement. It has been estimated that over 5% of children
present with some kind of language disorder. This volume illustrates
the state of the art in neurogenic language disorders in children. The
most recent findings about acquired epileptiform aphasias (from
Landau-Kleffner syndrome to autistic regression) are presented and
discussed. Language disorders in children with early brain lesions are
reviewed in relation to the side of the lesion and their epileptic
correlates (e.g., paroxysmal abnormalities during NREM sleep). New
clinical reports are presented and a large discussion is held on
language disorders due to malformation or tumor lesions localized to
the Posterior Fossa. The last part of the volume reviews the state of
the art on some of the most debated clinical neurolinguistic pictures
of developmental age such as crossed aphasia in children, the modality
and types of aphasia recovery in children and persistent acquired
childhood aphasia.

This volume is the fifth in a series of books commissioned by the
International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics and published
by Elsevier Ltd.
