Language Disorders

Language disorders are divided into two main areas:
Receptive Language

Receptive Language refers to our ability to hear, see and comprehend information that another person is trying to relate in written or spoken form.

Expressive Language

Expressive Language refers to our ability to organise what we want to say and be able to communicate that in an understandable and grammatically correct way.

Please remember that someone with a language disorder is not necessarily unintelligent, but an untreated language disorder may cause serious learning difficulties that impact upon the child realising their full potential at school and later in the work place.
