Developing their language acquisition skills
Language skills, the most common developmental disorder, is comprised of the child’s ability to communicate but also understand social cues and gestures. There are many reasons that can impact a child’s ability to communicate, some of which can be aided through additional support and practice, while others may take longer to come to fruition.
There are many key milestones that can make up a child’s communication journey throughout the years. You can find a comprehensive list on ICAN’s website.
Types of issues**:
Expressive language disorder: The inability for children to retain a large number of words and/or use them correctly
Speech production: When a child is unable to speak at all. This could be down to physical inability, a cognitive or social issue.
