Van Dongen and Visch-Brink (1988) also charted the resolution of the paraphasic errors in their head-injured and non-headinjured groups of aphasic children. The neologisms decreased with every succeeding examination (up to approximately 18 days post-onset). This decline, however, was not evident for the literal or verbal paraphasias, although all errors had disappeared by 6 months post-onset. In contrast, for the non-head-injured group, one case never used neologisms and the distribution of neologisms and paraphasias were irregular over time.
1986) suggested that these findings are indicative of a developmental immaturity on the part of the left-lesioned subjects. At the same time the right-lesion group produced a small percentage of their simple sentences correctly when compared with their controls, even though they attempted the same number of simple sentences. Both of these counts were different between the left-lesion group and their controls. The obviously poorer performance on the left-lesioned subjects when compared with their controls and when compared with the right-lesioned group and their controls 20 Acquired Childhood Aphasia: Neuropathology, Characteristics and Prognosis is indicative of a susceptibility for expressive syntactic impairments in children with unilateral left hemisphere lesions.
A greater number of subjects with unilateral brain lesions (n=32) between 6 and 17 years of age were assessed by Aram et al. (1987) to try to clarify the results of the previous studies. Two measures of lexical retrieval were used: the Word Finding Test (Wiegel-Crump and Dennis, 1984) and the Rapid Automatized Naming Test (RAN) (Denckla and Rudel, 1976). The results indicated that children with left hemisphere lesions required a longer latency to respond than their controls. The type of lexical access on the Word Finding Test affected the results.
