Language Disorder

A language disorder is defined as an impairment of the ability to communicate. This difficulty can be receptive (incoming) or expressive (outgoing) and can involve semantics (word choice), syntax (word order) or physical ability to speak as in Aphasia. As these types of disorders are rooted in the physical brain, this type of problem can also affect the use of sign language.
