Receptive and Expressive Language Disorder and Delay

Receptive and Expressive Language Disorder and Delay

Does your child know and understand words, but fails to form sentences correctly? Does your child understand the instruction of teachers? Is your child behind other children when it comes to following instructions?

Receptive language disorder: difficulty understanding what you are being told or processing written or verbal input.

Expressive language disorder: difficulty saying what you want to say in order to get your point or meaning across.

Studies have shown that as many as 5% of children have expressive and/or receptive language problems before they reach the first grade. Children that are on the autism spectrum and children whose second language is English often have expressive and receptive language disorders. We can help! Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
