What is Receptive Language Disorder?

Receptive Language Disorder is a communication disorder where individuals have difficulty understanding what others say and struggle with the meaning of language. They may respond in ways that don’t make sense, but this is not due to hearing loss, lack of social skills, and intelligence issues.

Receptive language disorder signs and symptoms

Receptive language disorders typically emerge in early childhood, but can also occur later in life due to brain injuries or illnesses known as aphasia. These disorders affect a person’s ability to comprehend and understand spoken or written language. Symptoms include difficulty following instructions, understanding questions, and delayed speech development. Early intervention and speech-language therapy are crucial for improving receptive language skills and communication abilities

Receptive language disorder is characterized by signs like struggling with directions, difficulty answering questions, limited vocabulary, and not comprehending written/spoken language. Those affected might also exhibit withdrawal or shyness in social interactions. It is important to provide support and strategies to help individuals with this disorder improve their communication skills and build confidence in social interactions.
