The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) can potentially cause impairment to linguistic functioning. This study was the first to compare selected aspects of speech motor control, expressive language and receptive language functioning in individual HIV infected children. Results suggested clinically stable HIV infected children can develop linguistic impairment. Such impairment is in danger of going unnoticed without assessment. Thorough and regular assessment of the linguistic functioning of long-term survivors of paediatric HIV disease is essential if optimal speech and language therapy management strategies are to be devised.
