Abstract
In the last century medical progress has substantially reduced the morbidity and mortality in somatic diseases. However there is a new morbidity with an increase of psychomotor developmental, learning, behavioral and mental disorders often with an initial onset in about 20% of childhood. A social gradient in terms of health inequalities is known. Reducing this new morbidity of child and adolescent health problems is a major public health priority. In this context alternative, complementary strategies for prevention or treatment are needed. At the example of expressive language disorder and consecutive risks in developing a specific reading and writing disability we would like to discuss in this survey potential future preventional perspectives.
