Arab Paediatric Medical Congress will discuss communication and language disorders in UAE

496Dr. Jessica Habib, PhD Clinical Psychologist, Child Early Intervention Medical Center, Dubai Health Care City, will discuss managing and identifying language delay in children during the Arab Paediatric Medical Congress, held in Amwaj Rotana Hotel Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 29 to 31 May 2014, under patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Medical Sciences.

“A child growing up in a setting with multiple languages is often at some risk for a delay in language development during his early years. This is a common problem in the Gulf countries, especially UAE, given our highly multicultural community. However, most of these children attain typical bilingual skills by the age of 5 years, and some even excel in other areas as a benefit to the multiple languages exposure”. Said Dr. Jessica Habib

“It must be clarified that this is a very different scenario from describing a child with autism or other communication disorder which are bio-neurologically-based problems. In other words, while multiple languages in a home environment can be a contributing factor for language delay in any child, a child with autism would have those deficits regardless of the language setting”. Added Dr. Jessica Habib

About the most common communication and language disorders in United Arab Emirates, said Dr. Jessica: “We still do see many children with a distinct language disorders affecting primarily receptive or expressive language, but not social development, or speech sound disorders which is a purely phonological or articulation deficit, or stuttering which is a fluency disorders, or other unspecified communication disorders that do not meet full criteria for a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders. We now also have a specific diagnosis called “social communication disorder” which affects a child’s social and pragmatic use of language and communication skills, but does not carry the stereotypy behavioral features seen in Autism”.
