Performances langagières et mnésiques étudiées chez l'enfant présentant un syndrome des jambes sans repos

Abstract : The Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder characterized by sensorimotor abnormal sensations in the limbs and whose symptoms reach their peak in the evening or at bed time. This assignment therefore disrupts the quality of sleep and wakefulness that follows. The impact on cognitive functions (memory and language) of RLS in children is still unclear. The aim of this study was to objectify a correlation between RLS symptoms and a possible language disorder. The results of our research have generally revealed oral and written language disorders in our population. These difficulties were partially related to attentional difficulties. It was also found in a large number of subjects impaired memory performance, especially disruption of working memory. These results would justify a prevention for childhood professionals and propose a speech-language evaluation.
