Identification of language disorders in childhood to help prevent illiteracy. C. Billard Early identification of disorders of oral and written language development is essential for effective action before the vicious circle of educational failure and established psychosocial consequences. There has been growing awareness among health and education professionals that the means of recognizing, treating and teaching children with specific oral and written language disorders are inadequate. There is still a limited number of diagnostic tools that have not been fully evaluated. Nevertheless, considerable effort has been made in recent years to develop instruments for early detection and precise diagnostic evaluation. Developments in cognitive neuropsychology provide new approaches for the management of these disorders.
