A language disorder, defined broadly, includes impaired ability to understand or use language as well as same-age peers of the same community. The disorder may involve

• the form of language (phonology, morphology, syntax);

• the content of language (semantics); and/or

• the use of language in communication (pragmatics).

A comprehensive language evaluation examines a child’s skills in the areas of listening and speaking as related to a suspected language disorder, across form, content and use. The evaluation determines the student’s ability to:

1. understand and interpret language;

2. use appropriate language to successfully communicate in a variety of situations and for a variety of purposes.
