The speed at which a child completes tasks, their facility with language, and their ability to pay attention – these all influence their everyday ability to function. Children develop these abilities as they mature, but those with language processing disorder can show weaknesses in all three areas over time. This affects their ability to do schoolwork, communicate socially, and get things done.
Understanding these deficits, and the way they influence each other, is the first step in managing them. The next step is to accept, accommodate, and advocate for your child. Armed with the right strategies, parents can ameliorate and improve processing, language, and attention differences.
