Children may experience language delays or disorders. These can occur in the area of receptive language and/or expressive language.
Receptive: Difficulty understanding or processing language. Examples of receptive language skills include following directions, understanding questions, and understanding a story.
Expressive: Difficulty using words and sentences (e.g. grammar, word order, sentence structure), limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way.
A comprehensive assessment can help determine whether your child may need help with his/her language skills.
