Abstract

Normally a neurological accident (stroke, head injury, degenerative processes, tumour) to the left hemisphere produces disor- of linguistic functions (aphasia). Among these deficits, the comprehension (reading) and production (spelling) of written lan- guage are frequently altered. In this communication will be described the different types of acquired dysgraphia following a cerebral damage. A cognitive model of the spelling system is reported to explain the different level of processing that can be impaired. The aim is to highlight the complexity of the different clinical pictures that the dysgraphic patients can to show: indeed a careful diagno- sis on damaged cognitive functions and processes can lead to an effective rehabilitative schedule.
