Abstract

The discourse of 91 children who had sustained severe (n = 68) or mild (n = 23) closed head injury (CHI) was examined at least three years postinjury. The groups' retellings of a narrative story were analyzed according to two domains, information and language. In comparison to the mild CHI group, the severe group produced stories characterized by reduced content and information, impaired organization, fewer words, and less complex sentences. Therelationships between discourse production and the groups' performance on measures of language, executive function, memory, and processing speed wereexamined. Correlations were found between discourse production and generalverbal ability including verbal fluency. Correlations were also found for discourse performance and executive function measures associated with problem solving and working memory. Site and extent of lesion were not useful inpredicting discourse production. These findings indicate that children whosustain a severe closed head injury during early to middle childhood are at risk for persisting deficits in discourse processing and other cognitive abilities.
