Speech and language disorders are one of the most common special needs in children. Difficulties can begin when a child is learning to talk or can show up later during the school years when more complex language skills are needed for learning. Language skills involve using words and using non-spoken language. Language is involved in almost everything we do. Sorting out the language difficulties of children can be challenging and can be even more challenging for children who are English Language Learners. As parents, the more we understand our child’s special needs, the better we are able to advocate for their needs.
