Étude sur l’incidence des contraintes linguistiques, cognitives et exécutives dans les compétences en lecture des enfants atteints de tumeurs de la fosse cérébrale postérieure

Abstract : With medical advances, the survival rate of children with posterior fossa tumors is increasing. This progress highlights the new and difficult living conditions of these children, who are underperforming at school, especially in reading classes. The purpose of this study is to look for linguistic, cognitive and executive difficulties, all of which are often features of this type of pathology, and to make the connection with their reading troubles. To do so, a population of twelve children with brain tumors was given various tests. The results were compared to those of random children coming from the calibrations of the battery of tests used. The results confirm the presence of reading disability within the children of our population. The study also found language disorders in morphosyntactic and phonological components, and disorders of executive functions in working memory and attention. They all are essential skills for learning to read. These results could explain the reading troubles of the children of our population. This study demonstrates the value of establishing a cognitive and language assessment of children with brain tumors, in order to develop compensatory mechanisms thanks to educational adaptations.
