Diagnosing and treating Aquired Childhood Aphasia (ACA)

Acquired aphasia in childhood is a rare condition and the - small - population of children with acquired aphasia is very heterogeneous, which complicates its diagnosis and treatment. ACA differs from adult aphasia in several ways. Adult aphasia is almost always caused by stroke, whereas traumatic brain injury and tumours are the most frequent etiologies in children. Age and language development at onset are important variables. In this presentation, the state of the art in diagnosis and treatment of ACA will be reviewed, as well as our current knowledge on prognosis and recovery patterns. As there is virtually no literature on language treatment for these children, it will be discussed how to use our knowledge on treating adult aphasia to improve rehabilitation of ACA.
