Devenir des adultes dysphasiques : étude d’une population âgée de 18 à 35 ans

Abstract : Dysphasia or developmental language disorder (DLD) is a structural, persistent and long-lasting disorder of oral language. It has many repercussions on daily life in childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Research on the disorder’s impact on the quality of life of adults with dysphasia is still scarce and few french-language studies have been published. Thus, we evaluated the impact of dysphasia on the different domains of quality of life of French dysphasic adults aged from 18 to 35 and traced their school career. For this purpose, we created a questionnaire that was self-administered to 75 participants. Our results show an impact of the disorder on the school career and the level of study but also an evolution of this dynamic since the law on the handicap of 2005. The socio-professional categories of workers and employees are over-represented. The quality of professional and social life, dependence, autonomy and daily life, cognitive and psychological aspects also seem to be altered by the disorder. In addition, significant links were demonstrated, firstly between the level of education and the use of assistance for administrative tasks or money management and also between the consequence of the disorder in daily life and self-esteem. These results should allow an improvement of the guidance and follow-up of dysphasic patients in the various stages of their lives, up to adulthood.
