Childhood Aphasia and Brain Damage: Volume II, Differential Diagnosis.
Rappaport, Sheldon R., Ed.
Addressing itself to factors leading to the misdiagnosis of the brain damaged child and the aphasic child, the Pathway School's Second Annual Institute considered the differences between the following: the aphasic and the aphasoid child; the sensory aphasic and the deaf child; the psychotic and the psychotic aphasic child; childhood brain damage and psychogenic learning disability; brain damage and mental subnormality; active intracranial pathology and conversion hysteria; and perinatal and ongoing brain damage. Papers presented are Lillian F. Wilson's "Assessment of Congenial Aphasia" and Sheldon R. Rappaport's "Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prognosis." Panel discussions and question-answer periods on aphasia and brain damage are transcribed; conclusions are reported; a 53-item bibliography is provided. The 10 case histories which served as discussion subjects for the institute are given. (EB)
