Language Disorder occurs when a person is facing trouble in understanding others. The people facing this problem face difficulties in sharing ideas and thoughts effectively with others. Children and adults both can be subjects to this problem. The language disorder at certain times is considered as a symptom for rising medical and clinical situations.
The overall literature found on this topic is focused on certain major issues. Moreover, the literature emphasizes on the language system and the factors which influence its credibility. Several tests have been conducted, but the results which have been generated from those tests are exceedingly vague. Linguistic theories have been modified using the results. Investigators have based most of their studies on studying the children which are subject to this disorder excessively.
The issues such as stuttering, language and voice impairment also affect the educational performance of the child. Most of these articulations are observed in children. The children face difficulties in making certain sounds which distort the listener and makes it difficult for people to understand the child. The fluency, the voice and the expressive and receptive language of the child may be affected because of this problem (NICHCY, 2011).
The characteristics of language disorder which is observed in children is related to the improper use of words and their meanings, failure in expressing the ideas effectively, following problems in applying proper grammatical patterns, lack of vocabulary and the inability of the child to follow the directions (Rice, Warren, & Betz, 2005).
Language disorder is an indication or a symptom for adverse medical conditions in the future. This may lead to hearing loss, neurological disorders, disability intellectually, abusive use of drugs, vocal abuse, brain injuries etc. Studies and researches show that the problem must be treated as soon as it is discovered to avoid intense problems. Remedial solutions have also been prescribed by the researchers.
