What is a language processing disorder and how can we help?

We all see students in our classrooms who seem to have difficulty understanding and following directions. It can be difficult to determine why they are having challenges. Some students stand out as having significantly more difficulties than others, which may be due to language comprehension delays and/or language processing disorders. This workshop will highlight the differences between language comprehension delays and language processing disorders as well as some characteristics of each. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience a “language processing disorder” during a simple simulation. This activity will facilitate discussion of concrete strategies to help support students with language comprehension and language processing disorders.
