It is also now apparent that children with acquired aphasia have a number of features in common with developmental language-learning disabilities, especially if the linguistic deficits persist long-term. Consequently, in addition to discussing language problems arising from cerebro-vascular accidents occurring in childhood, detailed discussion of each of the childhood linguistic deficits caused by other aetiologies, including head injury infections, cerebral anoxia, neural tube defects, brain tumours and metabolic disorders is presented in this book.
