Review of research on the clinical presentation of acquired childhood aphasia
TLDR
It appears that already in infancy the two cerebral hemispheres are no equal substrate for language representation, and prognosis and final outcome of ACA are not uniformly favourable.

Anomic Aphasia in Childhood
TLDR
This case involves a 10-year-old girl who experienced a left temporoparietal hematoma who had significant difficulty on confrontational naming, but could accurately spell and read the name of the objects presented to her and the course of recovery in childhood was good.
Clinical Evaluation of Conversational Speech Fluency in the Acute Phase of Acquired Childhood Aphasia: Does a Fluency/Nonfluency Dichotomy Exist?
TLDR
This study shows that the traditional views on the uniformity of the clinical picture of acquired childhood aphasia are obsolete and favors the notion that the anatomic substrate for language representation in the child is similar to that in adults, even in young subjects.

Acquired Alexia With Agraphia Syndrome in Childhood
TLDR
An 11-year-old, right-handed boy who sustained a left temporoparieto-occipital hematoma following rupture of an arteriovenous malformation and who consecutively presented with the acquired alexia with agraphia syndrome associated with word-finding difficulties is reported.
Conduction Aphasia in a 3-Year-Old with a Left Posterior Cortical/Subcortical Abscess
A 3-year-old, right-handed girl developed a conduction-type aphasia following a second generalized seizure in the setting of a developing abscess involving left subcortical and cortical angular gyrus
Assessment of Calculation and Number Processing by Adults: Cognitive and Neuropsychological Issues
TLDR
The multiple single-case analysis of dissociations in patients' performance suggested some limits with respect to anatomo-functional models of calculation and number processing.

Children with a history of acquired aphasia: residual language and academic impairments.
TLDR
The brain-injured group was heterogeneous with regard to age at onset, etiology, extent of damage, length of recovery, and outcome profiles, and careful and comprehensive assessment of a range of language and academic abilities is essential to adequately identify needs and appropriate intervention strategies for this population.

TLDR
The conflict between the results and the traditional claim of frequent aphasia with right hemisphere lesions was only apparent; the great majority of crossed aphasias are concentrated in reports written before antibiotics were used, and many cases were associated with systemic bacterial infections.
Aphasia and handedness in relation to hemispheric side, age at injury and severity of cerebral lesion during childhood.
TLDR
The results indicated that language deficits characterize the performance of all patient groups with left cerebral injuries and left hand dominance and prenatal and early postnatal left cerebral lesions consistently result in strong sinistrality.
Language deficits after apparent clinical recovery from childhood aphasia
TLDR
It is concluded that even when childhood aphasia results from a unilateral nonprogressive lesion, recovery of language is less complete than has been generally supposed.
Influence of rehabilitation on language skills in aphasic patients. A controlled study.
TLDR
It was found that rehabilitation has a significant positive effect on improvement in all language skills and time between onset and first examination and overall severity of aphasia were negatively related to improvement.
