Nurturing Language Development: Expressive & Receptive Language Delay Therapy at McKibben & Monte

Unlocking the Power of Expression and Understanding

Have you ever questioned if your child is just ignoring you when you speak to them, or if there could be something more going on? Or does your child get frustrated when trying to explain something to you? There could be many possible answers as to why this is happening, but if you’re noticing that your child is having a hard time understanding you, or verbally communicating back to you, they could possibly have a language delay.

At McKibben & Monte, we recognize that effective communication is the key to a child’s success and well-being. Our specialized therapy programs are designed to empower children with expressive and receptive language delays to connect with the world around them.

Understanding Expressive & Receptive Language Delays

Expressive language delay occurs when a child struggles to convey their thoughts, ideas, and feelings effectively. They may struggle to come up with the right words to use and may have a small vocabulary.  Receptive language delay, on the other hand, pertains to difficulties in understanding spoken language and processing information. They may not comprehend instructions or understand the meaning of many words being used, and may take longer to process information.  These challenges can impact a child’s ability to learn, interact, and thrive. A child can have one or both of them. Our speech and language therapists can help treat these delays in several ways, including:
  • Vocabulary building: introducing new words, concepts and their meaning
  • Sentence structure and grammar: teaching proper sentence formation, context and word order
  • Reading and communicating (at home, too!)
  • Games with directions such as “Simon Says”
  • Using visual aids to help connect words to their meaning
