Receptive Language Problem

Children with receptive language problem have difficulties in understanding spoken, and sometimes written, language. The following checklist may help you to get an idea if your child has a receptive language problem:

  • Difficulty understanding and following directions or instructions.
  • Becomes overwhelmed when given 2 or multi step directions.
  • Often doesn't understand longer more complex sentences, thus becomes confused easily.
  • Struggles with figurative versus literal language and will usually need explanations.
  • Regularly requires clarification and to have the instructions/directions repeated. Often uses the term 'I don't know' or 'I forget'.

The child may be able to read but when questioned about the passage just read, he/she has limited understanding.
