Communication is the ability to express and receive messages. Communication can include:
Expressive communication is expressing a message via verbal, written or non-verbal (body language) forms of communication.
Receptive communication is the ability to understand a message via verbal, written or non-verbal forms of communication.
A communication problem is a difficulty in expressing or receiving a message effectively. An individual may have an expressive, receptive or mixed expressive-receptive communication problem.
