    LANGUAGE
     

    The American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) defines a language disorder as an impairment in comprehension and/or use of a spoken, written and/or other symbol system. The disorder may involve language form (syntax, morphology, and phonology), content (semantics), and/or the functional use of language for communication (pragmatics). 

    Language impairments are typically classified as:

    Expressive- using or formulating language

    Receptive- a child’s ability to understand language

    Pragmatic- using language for social communication
