IMPORTANCE OF EARLY DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSTIC OF LATE AND INADEQUATE SPEECH DEVELOPMENT|
Despite their normal intellectual capacity, children with spoken language
communication disorders are frequently unsuccessful at learning, the
consequence of which are their behavioural problems.
It sometimes seems that speech disorders occur only when the child
starts school, while, in fact, they start much earlier but are not noticed or
recognised as significant.
Children with developmental spoken language disorders have difficulties
related to language acquisition, comprehension and expression.
They often have specific impairments in their motoric skills, perceptual
organization, concentration and attention, as well as in their emotional
and social development.
Findings of many researches suggest that prematurity represents one of
the most important risk factors responsible for language disorders and
In case of major development disorders (especially if perinatal brain
lesions are responsible for pathological development) children acquire
language structures using other processes of interpretation when compared
to their coevals without disorders, needing also more time for that.
The application of therapeutic-habitational methods may stimulate
processes of brain plasticity and contribute to the recovery of the
impaired function, or at least alleviate deficiency, provided subject
processes are initiated at an early stage, are directed correctly and conducted
Accurate and early diagnostics have to precede appropriate treatment
early detection of language disorders, appropriate treatment programmes, preventing learning difficulties
