Parent and teacher reports indicate that children with epilepsy exhibit social cognitive problems, but little is known about their performance on behavioural tasks that measure social cognition. The present study builds on recent research that suggests that children with epilepsy have impaired ability to differentiate between the self and other perspective. Children with epilepsy also are more likely to have impaired language, which has an important association with self-other differentiation.
We examined language and self-other differentiation during social problem solving in school-aged children with epilepsy (n= 6; mean age = 9.81 years), with language problems (n= 14; mean age = 9.84 years), and with typical development (n= 15; mean age = 9.93 years).
The children with epilepsy in this study presented with deficits in language and self-other differentiation during social problem solving.
Language problems in children with epilepsy may compromise their ability to resolve social problems in an age-appropriate manner. The findings highlight the need for research investigating language and self-other differentiation during social problem solving in children with epilepsy.
