Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau-Kleffner syndrome is a very rare childhood neurological disorder that affects the parts of the brain that control comprehension and speech. It is very difficult to diagnose and is sometimes misdiagnosed as a hearing impairment.

If you suspect that your child may have Landau-Kleffner syndrome, you can trust the world-renowned neurologists of Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience – the only dedicated hospital for neuroscience in the Philadelphia region – to make an accurate diagnosis and provide the right treatment options.
