Children with Acquired Aphasias

Front Cover
Wiley, 2005 - Education - 190 pages
The second edition of this book covering the main causes of acquired speech and language disorders in childhood both updates and expands the subject material. A total of 25 cases of children with these disorders are described and their management explained in detail, most from onset and including long term outcomes.

New features of the book include a chapter on speech and language disturbance due to cerebral tumour and the treatment of childhood cancers, as well as an expanded chapter on cerebral infection that includes recent work on children surviving cerebral malaria, one of the largest causes of cerebral infection world-wide.

The book is suitable for all who want to update and expand their knowledge of these conditions, both undergraduates and postgraduates, particularly speech and language therapists, but also psychologists, teachers and others.
