Vi har tidigare tipsat om en open access-artikel om konsensusarbete kring kriterier för språkstörning och nu är man färdig med fas två, som fokuserar på terminologi, ett preprint finns tillgängligt via länken.

Bishop, Snowling, Thomson & Greenhalgh: CATALISE: a multinational and multidisciplinary Delphi consensus study of problems with language development. Phase 2. Terminology

”The term ‘Language Disorder’ was preferred to refer to a profile of difficulties that causes functional impairment in everyday life and is associated with poor prognosis. The term, ‘Developmental Language Disorder’ (DLD) was endorsed for use when the language disorder was not associated with a known biomedical aetiology. It was also agreed that (1) presence of risk factors (neurobiological or environmental) does not preclude a diagnosis of DLD, (2) DLD can co-occur with other neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., ADHD), and (3) DLD does not require a mismatch between verbal and nonverbal ability.”
