Two groups of children with contrasting types of developmental language disorder (phonologic-syntactic and semantic-pragmatic) were compared with a group of children with high-level autism and with a control group of normal children on a broad battery of neuropsychological tests, known to be sensitive to left-right hemisphere damage. Significant differences found between the groups suggest contrasting forms of hemispheric dysfunction.
