Receptive Language is what children do with information when listening. It is how they process and understand what they hear.

Children with good receptive language skills:

  • Follow directions
  • Have good listening skills
  • Process spoken information
  • Answer questions appropriately
  • Understand stories that are read to them
  • Have good vocabulary knowledge

Characteristics of a receptive language disorder include confusion in the classroom, misunderstanding what they hear, responding to questions incorrectly, and problems communicating with friends.
