Speech and language
‘Speech’ and ‘language’ are two different things.
‘Speech’ errors are usually easy to hear for parents and teachers.
When we refer to a child’s ‘language’, we mean their ability to ‘understand’ and ‘use’ language. Children with language difficulties may present with any or all of the following:
Difficulty following instructions
Difficulty explaining their ideas
Frustration that others can’t understand them
Difficulty expressing themselves verbally or in writing
