Receptive Language

Receptive language is the language your child understands.  Language tasks involving following directions, processing information, and comprehension are all receptive language tasks.  As a rule, children acquire receptive language at a faster rate than expressive language in the early years.  For example, many one year old children can follow a one-step or two-step direction, but could not expressively ask someone else to perform the same direction. 

Receptive language delays affect children in many ways.  The inability to follow directions will affect children in every aspect of their learning and development.  For most kids, it is the inability to understand the words in the directions (before, after, next to, most, many etc.) than the direction itself.

Children with ADD/ADHD have a lot of difficulty with directions as well as processing information and comprehension.  Strategies can be taught for children with receptive language delays to comprehend language in meaningful ways.

If you are concerned about your child's receptive language skills, please view our contact information here to set up an appointment or to request additional information.

 

Expressive Language

Expressive language is the language your child uses to express their needs and wants.  Language tasks involving asking questions, commenting, conversing, and even arguing/protesting are expressive language tasks.  Expressive language delays are easier to identify than receptive delays in the early years.  Some children are "late talkers" and typically catch up to their peers.  However, if you suspect an expressive language delay, a consult with a Speech-Language Pathologist is highly encouraged.  Expressive language delays can have a far reaching effect on a child's overall education due to its impact on the language and all other subject areas in school.
