A receptive language disorder is a communication delay that involves understanding what others are saying. Children with a receptive language delay/disorder may struggle with identifying items, following directions, and/or organizing information. Below are signs of a receptive language delay:
At 15 months of age, your child does not look or point at people or objects when named.
At 18 months, they are unable to follow simple directions.
At 24 months, they are not pointing to body parts, pointing to clothing or pointing to common objects named.
At 3 years of age, they do not understand simple opposite words (in/out or big/little) or listen to and enjoy hearing stories for longer periods of time.
At 4 years of age, they do not understand words such as colors, shapes and family members.
By 5 years of age, they do not understand the words such as first, last, next.
