The language impairment in case Broca’s aphasia is generally among the young children who are less than five years of age. Thus, it occurs at the times when the child is very small. The children suffering from SLI generally has to be detected in the very early age so that the treatment can be done easily. It is important as once it is completely developed, the child can’t overcome from it. Broca’s aphasia is generally caused among the people of different age groups. The language which is spoken by the children suffering from Broca’s aphasia are slightly different from those of the patients having SLI impairment (O’Brien, et al., 2003).
In case of Broca’s aphasia the person can understand the things easily and he faces difficulty only in the communication of the same. On the other hand, in case of SLI the child may face the problem to learn new words (Grodzinsky, et al.,1999). These children fail to use the verbs while speaking in a proper way and do not speak complete words. For example a child who is suffering from this disease can speak the sentence “He ate a chocolate” as “he eat the chocolate”. Thus the words that is spoken by the child who is suffering from the SLI impairment is comparatively clearer than the one which is spoken by the child who is suffering from this disease.
The child suffering from SLI generally omits the verbs and does not follows the rules of grammar while he speaks. On the other hand the people who suffer from Broca’s aphasia are unable to speak clearly.
Aphasia is caused by the damage to the brain and leads to the unclear verbal delivery by the person. On the other hand, SLI is not caused due to the damage in the brain and is only related to the language disorder in which the child fails to deliver the language in a proper manner (Gillon,2000).
