Some preschool age children have difficulty with understanding language (receptive language) and or talking (expressive language). If your child has a receptive language delay they may have trouble with following directions, answering questions, and identifying objects and pictures, etc. If your child has an expressive language delay they may have difficulty asking question, naming objects, putting words into sentences, using correct pronouns and overall sentence structure (grammar), etc. For more information about what your child should be able to do click on your child’s age.
