Language Delays and Disorders
Late-developing and impaired language abilities may result in difficulties across a range of areas: such as being able to understand and follow directions; immature use of grammar and syntax; difficulties with word retrieval; and difficulties sequencing information. These, and other language difficulties, can then in turn affect other areas such as confidence, reading comprehension and social interactions.
Identification and targeted intervention of language difficulties can make a significant difference for children and the way they view themselves. This often leads to children developing an enthusiasm for language-related activities, games and reading, and an increase in their levels of confidence.
