We hear you loud and clear! April’s edition of the Pediatric Speech Therapy Newsletter is here with a great piece on the importance of expressive and receptive language development in children!


Expressive language is the use of words, sentences, and gestures to convey meaning. Children use expressive language in several ways and for a myriad of reasons, such as pointing at and labeling objects, answering questions, and asking for help. Receptive language involves language processing and comprehension. To successfully communicate, it is essential to master both expressive and receptive communication skills.


Here’s the full rundown for our April 2018 issue:
