A number of experiments support the hypothetical utility of statistical information for language learning and processing among both children and adults. However, tasks in these studies are often very general, and only a few include populations with developmental language disorder (DLD). We wanted to determine whether a stronger relationship might be shown when the measure of statistical learning is chosen for its relevance to the language task when including a substantial number of participants with DLD. The language ability we measured was sensitivity to verb bias – the likelihood of a verb to appear with a certain ...

Abstract Developmental language disorder (DLD) and developmental speech disorder (DSD) are common, yet their etiologies are not well understood. Atypical volume of the inferior and posterior language regions and striatum have been reported in DLD; however, variability in both methodology and study findings limits interpretations. Imaging research within DSD, on the other hand, is scarce. The present study compared grey matter volume in children with DLD, DSD, and typically developing speech and language. Compared to typically developing controls, children with DLD had larger volume in the right cerebellum, possibl...

Conclusions: Our finding along with previous studies provide more evidence of the clinical heterogeneity of diseases caused by mutations in PNKP which makes its clinical diagnosis difficult and highlights the importance of genetic testing to unravel the cause of these diseases.

AbstractSpeech and language disorders are prominent signs in Friedreich ataxia (FRDA), which significantly impact on patients ’ quality of life. Despite such relevance, several issues regarding phenomenology, assessment, and treatment are still unmet. In this short review, we thus analyzed the existing literature to summarize what is known about the features of speech and language disorders in FRDA, which methods are use d for evaluation and rating, and what are the available therapeutic strategies and future direction of scientific research in this field, in order to highlight critical aspects for a better clinical ...

CONCLUSIONS &IMPLICATIONS: We conclude that poorer semantic fluency performance in children with DDLD results not from a lexicon with poor semantic structure, but rather from slower retrieval processes from a lexicon with intact semantic structure. The underlying causes of slow lexical retrieval still need further investigation. PMID: 31697020 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
