Communication Problems

A communication problem is a difficulty in expressing or receiving a message effectively, or a combination of both. A child may have an expressive communication problem, where they have difficulty expressing a message. Expressive communication includes, written, verbal and non-verbal (body language) forms of communication. A child may have a difficulty in one or all forms of communication. A receptive communication problem is where a child has a difficulty in understanding a message, which can include verbal, written and non-verbal communication.

A child may have an expressive, receptive or mixed expressive-receptive communication problem. There are many different reasons for these difficulties and symptoms can range from mild to severe.
