Language Disorder

A language disorder is an impairment that makes it hard for someone to find the right words and form clear sentences when speaking. It can also make it difficult to understand what another person is saying. A child may have difficulty understanding what others say, may struggle to put thoughts into words, or both.

You may notice that your child’s vocabulary is very basic, and his sentences are short, ungrammatical and incomplete. Children with language disorders have difficulty mastering the rules of language and without treatment, their communication problems will continue and may lead to emotional issues and academic struggles.

Type of Language Disorders:

  • • Receptive Language issues involve difficulty understanding what others are saying
  • • Expressive language issues involve difficulty expressing thoughts and ideas
  • • Mixed receptive and expressive language issues involve difficulty understanding and using spoken language
