Receptive Language:

Receptive Language is the ability to understand and interpret spoken language. It includes comprehending basic vocabulary, following complex directions, and grasping abstract concepts. Children with receptive language difficulties may struggle with following directions, participating in classroom activities, and communicating effectively with peers and adults.

Comprehension refers to the ability to understand and make sense of language. It includes understanding written and spoken language, interpreting figurative language, and making inferences. Poor comprehension skills can make reading challenging and lead to difficulty in understanding new concepts and ideas.

Auditory Processing

Auditory Processing is the ability to process and interpret sounds in the environment. This includes the ability to listen to and understand speech, differentiate between sounds, and recognize patterns within sounds. This also includes processing and sequencing information and can coincide with thought organization.

Literacy is the ability to read and write effectively. When it comes to speech therapy, it can include learning sound-letter correspondence to put words together (blend) and take them apart (segment), and comprehension. Strong literacy skills are crucial for academic success and expand communication opportunities and development.
