Receptive Expressive Language Therapy


Getting Started with Receptive Expressive Language Therapy

Language disorders are an impairment which makes it difficult for someone to find the right words and form clear sentences or to understand what people are saying to them, or even both. These conditions may be indicated by a child having a limited vocabulary, struggling to join in with jokes or following conversations. Children with language disorders may also speak in very simplistic sentences or struggle to answer simple questions.

Language disorders are not the same as hearing or speech disorders. Language disorders are specific problems pronouncing words and understanding the rules of language. Treatment is vital to ensure that children grow up confidently and avoid later problems in school or emotional issues.


Receptive Language Disorder

Receptive language disorders often mean that children struggle to understand what is being said to them. Children may appear confused and this may be most clear in the classroom. Having issues following instructions at home or getting along with peers may also suggest a receptive disorder. Children are also likely to develop an over reliance on facial expressions due to a problem processing speech.

Expressive Language Disorder

Children who suffer expressive language disorders have problems expressing themselves through language. This can express itself in sentences with incorrect grammar, incoherent vocal noises, or through using inappropriate words. Many children with expressive disorders rely on simplified messages, rather than expressing more complex lines of thought or reasoning.

Speech Therapy for Expressive or Receptive Disorders

With language disorders in children it is important that treatment begins as early as possible. As children grow, they continue to develop new cognitive pathways for speech and language which become more difficult to change later in life. Speechaim offers therapy for children with speech disorders to help improve their language abilities from an early age.

One-on-one therapy: Speechaim will provide a dedicated language therapist who will work with your child to build their vocabulary. By working on-one-one your child will get to know their therapist as they work to improve vocabulary and grammatical structure. These lessons can also be taken home, as the therapist will provide exercises you can practice, helping your child become more confident.


Group therapy: Many children experience vast benefits as a result of group environments. No two children’s language disorders are the same, meaning the children are exposed to the difficulties of others. This helps them understand that others have similar problems. Speechaim will create a comfortable environment where your child can develop their language skills.

Ways you can help at home

There are a number of techniques that you can use at home to help your child overcome language disorders.

  • Singing or talking to your child will help them develop language abilities, allowing them to mimic you and practice their speaking skills

  • Learning about your child’s difficulties will help enormously. Speechaim will guide you through this process and teach you to help your child independently

  • Don’t finish your child’s sentences, if they struggle for words allow them to think of them independently. This will aid confidence and ensure they do not rely on you.

Speechaim has vast experience and specialist speech therapists. By arranging therapy with Speechaim you will help your child grow in confidence and ability, ensuring that they avoid later difficulties and giving them the best chance for a bright future.
