Language Disorders

Language is the basis of human communication and can take many forms including spoken words, hand and body gestures, facial movements, signs, and symbols. A language disorder is present when there is difficulty understanding and/or using these communication systems.

Language can be broken up into two parts; receptive and expressive. Receptive language refers to understanding language. Expressive language refers to using language for communication. A person with a language disorder could have difficulty with receptive language, expressive language, or both receptive and expressive language.

Language disorders can affect both children and adults and have a variety of causes. Language disorders can be addressed through therapy by a certified speech-language pathologist.
