3. Language problems at 2½ years of age and their relationship with school-age language impairment and neuropsychiatric disorders
Sammanfattning : Background: International research has shown that language delay (LD) is associated with social, cognitive, emotional and/or behavioural deficiencies, but there is still a need for extended knowledge about LD at early age and its relationship with long-term language impairment and neuropsychiatric disorders in Swedish children.
