Childhood Aphasia.
West, Robert, Ed.
A group of experts met at the Stanford Medical Center in 1960 to assist the California Society for Crippled Children and Adults in establishing guidelines for the development of services for aphasic children. Subjects discussed were (1) language development in the normal child, (2) neurological bases of linguistic functions, (3) semantic aspects of childhood aphasia, (4) causes of childhood aphasia, (5) relationship to handedness, (6) relationship to adult aphasia, (7) rationale of therapy, (8) relationship with parents, and (9) research needs. Each chapter presents excerpts of comments made by the speakers at the workshops. A list of conference participants is included. (HK)
