Landau-Kleffner syndrome (LKS)
Treatment & Care
Your child's care team will most likely include a neurologist, a neuropsychologist, and a speech pathologist or audiologist. Some children with behavioral problems may also need to see a child psychologist and a psychopharmacologist. Your child will also likely undergo treatment with steroids, anti-epileptic, or anti-convulsant medications.
Your child should also begin speech therapy at the time of diagnosis. An intensive language-based speech program is best when continued throughout the educational years.
