Abstract

The study of developmental language disorders is discussed from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is argued that retrospective studies have provided valuable information on developmental language disorders that needs to be integrated into a theoretical model capable of capturing the basic mechanisms of language development. Conclusion: It is concluded that interdisciplinary and prospective studies and theoretical work are necessary to increase insight into developmental language disorders
