Children with a language disorder may experience difficulties expressing themselves and understanding what others say. This is unrelated to hearing problems.

Expressive language disorders and receptive language disorders are common in young children.

Children who have problems with expressive language may have trouble

●     Asking questions

●     Naming objects

●     Using gestures

●     Putting words together into sentences

●     Learning songs and rhymes

●     Using correct pronouns, like "he" or "they"

●     Knowing how to start a conversation and keep it going

●     Changing how they talk to different people and in different places. For example, you speak differently to an adult than a young child. You can talk louder outside than inside. Many children have problems with both receptive and expressive language.
