Speech-language disorder 1

Common Name(s)

Speech-language disorder 1

Speech-language disorder-1 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by severe orofacial dyspraxia resulting in largely incomprehensible speech. Affected individuals were originally thought to have specific defects in the use of grammatical suffixation rules ({8:Gopnik, 1990}; {7:Gopnik and Crago, 1991}). The phenotype, however, is broader in nature, with virtually every aspect of grammar and language affected ({2:Fisher et al., 1998}). {23:Vargha-Khadem et al. (1998)} concluded that the disorder is characterized by abnormal development of several brain areas critical for both orofacial movements and sequential articulation, resulting in marked disruption of speech and expressive language. Relation to Specific Language Impairment Children who fail to develop expressive and/or receptive language normally, in the absence of explanatory factors such as neurologic disorders, hearing impairment, or lack of adequate opportunity, are clinically described as having specific language impairment (SLI; see {606711}) ({1:Bartlett et al., 2002}). See also familial developmental dysphasia ({600117}).
