Playing with Animals


Receptive language is the understanding of language that is heard and read by your child. 

How do I know if my child is experiencing difficulties in this area?

  • Difficulty following simple directions

  • May understand stories that are read to them, but won't be able to provide a simple explanation

  • A limited vocabulary compared to their peers

  • Difficulty learning new words

  • Says "um" often when talking and uses certain words and phrases over and over again

  • Not very talkative and has fewer conversational skills than peers

  • Confuses verb tense and leaves out keywords

  • Is easily frustrated by the inability to communicate an idea or thought

  • Sentences don't make a lot of sense
