LANGUAGE refers to understanding what is said to you as well as being able to express yourself in a clear and sufficient manner. In language therapy, we work on receptive language and expressive language.
Receptive language refers to understanding. This can be following directions, understanding vocabulary and concepts, and reading comprehension to name a few.
Expressive language refers to what we say. This can be our grammar skills, our ability to accurately answer questions, explain our thoughts and ideas, etc.
Language therapy does not occur solely in the speech and language therapy room. Language skills are necessary throughout the day and we work as a team to support our students' language needs across settings.
