Impairments in structural language and pragmatics are well recognized in different neurodevelopmental disorders, yet in clinical work the discrimination of children with various language difficulties into different diagnostic profile is still a major challenge. Using the CCC-2 questionnaire this study assesses and compares language competences in a sample of Italian children (aged 8–10) with typical development (n = 26) and in children with different neurodevelopmental conditions: high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (n = 19), Language Disorder with associated Developmental Dyslexia (n = 23), Developmental Dyslexia without linguistic impairments (n = 21). The results supported the validity of CCC2 as screening measure that is able to distinguish children with communication impairments from non-impaired peers.

Abstract

Impairments in structural language and pragmatics are well recognized in different neurodevelopmental disorders, yet in clinical work the discrimination of children with various language difficulties into different diagnostic profile is still a major challenge. Using the CCC-2 questionnaire this study assesses and compares language competences in a sample of Italian children (aged 8–10) with typical development (n = 26) and in children with different neurodevelopmental conditions: high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (n = 19), Language Disorder with associated Developmental Dyslexia (n = 23), Developmental Dyslexia without linguistic impairments (n = 21). The results supported the validity of CCC2 as screening measure that is able to distinguish children with communication impairments from non-impaired peers.
