    Teachers and parents share many concerns about children at school.  My child has difficulty following directions.  John can’t seem to clearly explain his ideas.  Most people have trouble understanding Lydia’s speech.  Charles stutters.  Angela doesn’t know how to communicate in social situations and misinterprets social cues.  Grace struggles with vocabulary.  Jacob doesn’t understand abstract language including jokes.  Alex’s grammar is poor.

    How a Speech and Language Pathologist Can Help:

    What all these children may have in common is a communication disorder and may benefit from seeing a Speech/Language Pathologist in the school setting.  Parents or teachers who have concerns about their child’s speech and language abilities should contact their school’s Speech/Language Pathologist (SLP).  A SLP’s responsibility is to determine whether a disability exists and work with parents, teachers, and other specialists to create an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) to meet that child’s needs.

    What is a language disorder?

    A language disorder is a problem with understanding and/or using spoken, written, and/or other symbol systems (e.g., gestures, sign language). The disorder may involve 1) the form of language (phonology, morphology, syntax), 2) the content of the language (semantics), and/or the function of language in communication (pragmatics) in any combination.

    1. Form of Language

    • Phonology is the sound system of a language and the rules about how sounds are combined.
    • Morphology is the structure of words and how word forms are constructed.
    • Syntax is the order and combination of words to form sentences.

    2. Content of Language

    • Semantics is related to the meanings of words and sentences.

    3. Function of Language

    • Pragmatics is the combination of language components (phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics) in functional and socially appropriate ways.

    Language disorders may include:

    • Impaired language development - characterized by a marked slowness or gaps in the development of language skills.
