Language Disorders

 Language disorders or language impairments are disorders that involve the processing of linguistic information. Problems which will be experienced can involve grammar (syntax and/or morphology), semantics (meaning), or other aspects of language. These problems could also be receptive (involving impaired language comprehension), expressive (involving language production), or a mixture of both. Examples include specific language impairment, better defined as developmental language disorder, or DLD, and aphasia, among others. Language disorders can affect both spoken and written communication and may also affect sign language; typically, all sorts of language are going to be impaired. Preliminary research on potential risk factors have suggested biological components, like low birth weight, prematurity, general birth complications, and male gender, also as case history and low parental education can increase the prospect of developing language disorders. For children with phonological and expressive language difficulties, there's evidence supporting speech and language therapy. However, an equivalent therapy is shown to be much less effective for receptive language difficulties. These results are according to the poorer prognosis for receptive language impairments that are generally accompanied with problems in reading comprehension
