Language is the system of communication that comprises age-appropriate vocabulary and grammar in both spoken, signed and written forms (expressive language). It is also the ability to understand and make meaning from spoken or written language (receptive language). Pragmatic language refers to the social language skills we use in our daily interactions with others, such as how we communicate our thoughts and feelings both verbally and non-verbally.
Speech pathology management can help a person develop their ability to express themselves, make meaning from spoken and written language as well as communicate socially with greater insight and confidence. Such skill development ensures one can have their communication needs met and have greater confidence as they make sense of their world.
