Condition 101 About Developmental Dysphasia Familial

What is the definition of Developmental Dysphasia Familial?

Developmental dysphasia is a language disorder that develops in children. The disorder typically involves difficulties speaking and understanding spoken words. The symptoms cannot be attributed to sensorimotor, intellectual deficits, autism spectrum, or other developmental impairments. Likewise it does not occur as the consequence of an evident brain lesion or as a result of the child's social environment. Familial cases of developmental dyphasia have been described. In these families, the condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion.

What are the alternative names for Developmental Dysphasia Familial?

  • Developmental language disorder
  • Specific language impairment

What is the outlook (prognosis) for Developmental Dysphasia Familial?

The severity of the signs and symptoms experienced by children with developmental dysphasia can vary significantly. In some instances, language difficulties persist through adolescence. In addition, children with developmental dysphasia often have difficulty learning to read.
