ABSTRACT
Neurologically impaired children require consciously and thoughtfully tailored speech on the part of those conversing with them. Awareness of the need for "stripped-down" speech, consistent use of terms, allowance for time lag between reception and response, etc. can improve chances of success in communication between the child and those dealing with him.
