Early Diagnosis


Language Delay Language acquisition in the expected sequence, but at a slower than normal rate. May or may not catch up with peers (changes into something else over time; may close, widen, or plateau)
Identifying a Delay Profile of strengths/weaknesses, tracking receptive/expressive skills, look at lang. skills relative to cogn. skills, formal (standardized) and informal testing
Language Disorder Language skills in the areas of form, content, or use, are not consistent with what is typically seen in children of a similar age and a similar cultural and linguistic background.
Identifying a Disorder Assess receptive and expressive language skills (look for atypical profile of skills), use formal and informal testing
Language Difference Communication behaviors meet the norms or the primary speech community, but not Standard English
Basis for Language Difference Race/ethnicity, SES, education, cultural differences (different uses of form, content, and use; use of narratives and turn taking)

False positives lead to Receive an inappropriate label, may be stigmatized, low expectations, misdirected services
False negatives lead to Denial of necessary support and services
Client centered intervention Child selects materials and sets pace; clinician facilitates form, content, use within child-selected activities
