Some Perspectives on Management Speech and Language Disorders in Cerebral Palsy

  • E. Davies
Part of the Topics in the Neurosciences book series (TNSC, volume 6)


The first indicators of an emergent communication disorder are the failure to acquire language or the inability to produce intelligible speech, within the ‘normal’ time scale. Whilst it is generally accepted that the cerebral palsied child is at high risk of speech and/or language problems referral for speech therapy is often delayed until the child has failed to attain the developmental ‘norms’ for speech production.
