Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum: Assessment and Remediation of School-Related Problems.
Puente, Antonio, E.
The paper examines three cases of children born with brain damage (absence of corpus callosum). Common problems (attentional, cognitive, visuo-motor, and motor deficits) are noted, and the impact of secondary emotional involvement is considered. Intervention approaches with two of the children are described as inconsistent and inadequate, while the third child has been receiving early and appropriate stimulation backed by family and local agency involvement. The paper suggests that, from a treatment standpoint, specific deficits--even in developing brains--appear to require specific interventions. (CL)
