Many children have difficulty in language areas such as reading comprehension, vocabulary word knowledge, syntax (word order), following directions, building sentences, and grammar. While others may be diagnosed with a genetic or neurological disorder. Language intervention is highly specialized, unique to your child’s needs, and complemented by functional goals.
Expressive Language: Do you have concerns that your child has a limited vocabulary compared to their same aged peers, has trouble learning new vocabulary words, repeats certain phrases when trying to convey their thoughts, may not talk much or often, is able to pronounce words and sounds, but sentences often don’t make sense, omits key words and confuses verb tenses and pronouns? Your child may be experiencing expressive language deficits.
Receptive Language: Do you have concerns that your child is unable to follow verbal commands, has trouble understanding what other people are saying, is not able to look or point at people or objects when they are named? Your child may be experiencing receptive language deficits.
