Psychophysiological Evaluation of Neuropsychological Disorders in Children

  • Thalía Harmony
Part of the Critical Issues in Neuropsychology book series (CINP)


In recent years important advances have been made in the analysis of processes that are affected in different groups of children with cognitive deficits. For example, developmental disorders of language (dysphasia) and reading (dyslexia) had been viewed as distinct clinical syndromes, although more recent research findings have suggested a clear link between these developmental learning disabilities. First, longitudinal studies have demonstrated that children with language disorders are at very high risk for developing reading disabilities. Second, neuropsychological profiles specifically focused on the areas of phonological disorders and specific temporal processing deficits appear to be quite similar for children with developmental language and reading disorders (Tallal, Galaburda, Llinas, and von Euler, 1993).
