Receptive language skill refers to the ability to understand the language produced by others. It involves comprehending concepts, word structures, and sentence structures in order to create meaning. Children with a receptive language delay have difficulty understanding aspects of their first language. They might not understand as many words as other children their age, have difficulty with concepts or become confused by longer instructions. Our SLPs will assess a child’s receptive language using both informal measures and standardized tests. This will allow us to identify where comprehension breakdown occurs and what therapy goals or supports need to be put in place to maximize language growth as well as social, emotional and academic success.
