Receptive Language Disorder

Receptive language refers to understanding language in your environment. Receptive language includes understanding not only spoken language, but also non-verbal language including written language and sign language. Some children may experience challenges with receptive language or have a receptive language disorder.

Children may benefit from speech therapy to build receptive language skills if they demonstrate difficulty in any of the following skill areas:

  • Understanding and following directions.
  • Answering ‘WH’ questions (who, what, when, where, why, and how).
  • Interpreting gestures.
  • Turn-taking during conversations.
  • Comprehending vocabulary that is age-appropriate.

Speech-language pathologists are licensed clinicians who can help children build a wide range of skills including receptive language. Clinicians individualize therapy sessions based on the specific strengths and areas of concern.
